Mat Hooking @ Norton’s Cove Studio

I had the good luck to lead three charming students in a mat hooking workshop today.  I was sad to see them leave at the end of the afternoon- there was some bonding over burlap!

Here are their works in progress:

Sand Dollar in progress
This piece was inspired by a historical mat as seen in Hooked Mats of Newfoundland and Labrador: Beauty Born of Necessity, compiled by the Rug Hooking Guild of NL.
And I’m really looking forward to seeing this starfish in its complete state!
