William Morris: A Designer for All Time
"Have nothing in your home which you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful".
William Morris’ decorating philosophy can be
summarized in one word “simplicity”. We will be hooking Morris designs
and learn about his time and place through story and music. You may create a design or purchase it from a
rug hooking studio or on line. In my
student letter to you I will include a list of “copy free books” as well as
colour suggestions. A little knowledge of shading will be helpful, however we
will be hooking only a few values of
each beautiful hue. Any fabric and cut
from 3 to 10 may be used, this is
determined by the intricacy of the design and the weave of the backing. Join me for a fun filled course, a lot of
learning and sharing.
Doris Norman is a skilled artisan and instructor since 1982, she enjoys sharing her passion
