Honing Your Wide-Cut Technique & Dye Techniques with Gene Shepherd



June 22-25, 2016
Capitol Plaza Hotel in Montpelier, Vermont

Due to the overwhelming feedback we have received from students hoping to take a hooking class with Gene, Green Mountain Rug School is pleased to offer a second session class devoted to the art of hooking wide cut! While Gene is known for his dyeing and proddy work, he is also an expert with wide cut techniques. In this class students will learn techniques associated with the design and execution of rugs in a #8-12 cut. Gene is a supportive and collaborative perfectionist and will have you walking out the door with something you truly love!
