For those of you who took our online course last winter, get ready for the next level. Over the last few months I have been creating level two, of our series of online courses. In the Wild with Style Course we will be looking at the importance of creating your own style as you hook rugs. We’ll be talking about design, colour , creativity, and rug hooking of course. It will be run in the same way as Wild with Wool with weekly posts and lessons, videos and activities.
Style is hard to define but we know it when we see it. This course is a followup to Getting Wild with Wool and it will be about the importance of design and creativity in developing style in your hooked rugs.
Designing hooked rugs can be a real challenge and this course is going to lead you through the steps so that you can design hooked rugs easily and confidently. Carefully designed , this course will lead you step by step through the process of designing and creating unique hooked rugs that speak of your personal style.
With guidance and support you will begin to design rugs that reflect who you are, and start to develop your own personal style of rug hooking.
It will cover many topics including an introduction to hooking people and an introduction to hooking abstract rugs.

Each week I will post the articles and videos about the topic. It will be self directed,
you can go online at anytime and look at the course materials, read, watch and learn.
The assignments and tips and ideas will be there for you to carry out through the week.
In our online learning community you can post pictures and stories about your
progress which I will read and comment directly on.
You will be given a password for the weekly lesson and the online learning community.
You will need:
a computer that allows you to watch video and basic computer skills
a camera so you can share your images if you wish
an email address to receive information
rug hook, frame, pattern and backing, and a selection
of wool in a variety of textures.
You can purchase a course materials package
( texture pack) on line as an add on
to the course if you wish, but remember shipping
can take up to two weeks to the states.
The texture packs will be suited to the projects in the course you have registered for.
a few hours each week to spend on your hooking and assignments
You will receive:
detailed posts each week about the topic at hand with
video each week explaining the section with close ups
photo tutorials about the ideas discussed in the post
an assignment for you to complete that will help
integrate your learning on the weeks topic
a section of tips and ideas for the weeks topic
inspiration and ideas about rug hooking, creativity, and art
instruction on technique
a place to ask questions and get direct feedback from Deanne
at the end of the weekly post you can post comments ,
questions, and input and I will respond
How do I communicate with others in the course?
There will be an online community where you can post
pictures of your work in progress and other information on the topic.
You can also interact through the comments on the blog post or by
emailing each other directly
if you both agree to share your email address with someone else.
I will not be working with people privately and independently
in this course but as part of the community.
I will be viewing all the images, comments and notes that are posting and
offering comprehensive, honest feedback as much as possible.
If you want private lessons online, that can be arranged separately
from the course, through skype.
Start date: November, 2012
End date: December,2012
How do I pay?
You can pay by ordering online with visa or master card anytime.
Payment will be processed upon registration.
Do I have to show my work and complete the assignments?
That is completely up to you. You can just follow along quietly if you prefer,
or you can participate a lot in the community and the assignments.
I work on an adult learning model , understanding that the easier
we make it for people to learn at different times, in their own ways, the more they can learn.
Do I have to be available at a certain time?
No, because we are working in so many different time zones
the course will be available to you when your schedule permits.
I would encourage you to check in several times a week to keep yourself
updated. We will leave the material up for four weeks after the course is over for you to review.
You can sign up here by clicking on the add to cart button and going through online checkout
If you have more questions you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note I have added an optional textured wool package for the
course to the online shop if you want it because people asked for it.
You purchase the texture package and we will design it for the Wild with Style Course.
You can work with your own materials or purchase any kit or pattern to work along with on this course.
I am designing it for independent study so you choose the project you want to work on.
If you want the textured package or supplies from the course please order
it early so you will have it in time, thanks so much.
What People Say About My Online Courses:
“Based on my experience with Deanne’s first online
course in February, I can recommend her as a teacher.
She communicates openly both in her written and spoken words.
Her explanations of “the what to do – why to do – and how to
do” via her videos, her writings, her photos of the work,
are clear, very helpful and motivating. In addition,
those online members who respond and ask questions
have also added to my learning experience.
This is a worthwhile 5 week opportunity in which you are
encouraged and guided to go at your own pace.”
“Thanks so much Deanne. I have thoroughly enjoyed
your writings , videos etc. In a previous time
I taught painting and it was incredible when a person
realized they could produce art when they always said,
“I have no artistic talent.” I have thoroughly enjoyed
your class and all the lessons and I keep
going back and reading everything over and over”
“I wish I could bottle this feeling and sell it because
I would be a rich woman.
Wow, do you ever inspire a person.”
“Great Workshop Deanne,
so much info and ideas. these lesssons have been really packed.
I wanted to say if anyone is thinking of signing up for Deanne’s online course do it!
As anyone who’s taken a course with
Deanne knows, she is a great and generous yeacher who brings alot
of experience, imagination, and , always,
creativity to her courses. Getting Wild with Wool is no exception.
I found the course chock full of information and inspiration
with many different avenues of learning. And best of all
was the communication with other participants
from all over the world. It just made me so proud. Maile in Seattle
