Last Sunday and Monday, the Sunshine Rug Hookers hosted two one day workshops given by Jennifer Manuell. The topic was making hooked jewelry, but no matter what the topic, attending a workshop given by Jennifer is both fun and informative.
Jennifer’s bubbly personality, high degree of organization, and vast knowledge ensure a wonderful experience for everyone there. Our host, Linda Wilson provided the perfect venue so it was a fun and informative day.
Jennifer’s jewelry examples, left us all with something to aspire to in the future.
Her personal choice of colour palette is very distinctive and recognizable, and one I have tried to emulate at various times, but alas, those brights always seem to speak to me too loudly.
Thanks to Teresa Morneau for sending her pictures to share as well as those I managed to take. (sorry Teresa, I can’t seen to enlarge your shots)
Here we are “in progress”.
By our meeting on Tuesday morning, a few had finished their first piece. (I only got photos of three)
We all came away with all the materials to make a second, larger and more complicated piece, so there will be lots of new jewelry being sported in our area in the coming months.
My personal thanks to Jennifer for a great day, and Linda for allowing us to once again use her studio.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. My turkey is thawing!
