Lise Merchant is a certified rug hooking teacher from the Prairie Harvest Rug Hooking School, specializing in the stain glass technique.Winter Blues is not only a tranquil winter scene but
an exercise in transferring the stained glass effect to a hooked rug.
Quite a challenge, but not impossible.
To mimic the effect of stained glass in rug hooking, we have to remember that we want to give the illusion of light, which is created by using spot dyed or mottled wool. That can be created by allowing more muted white wool or light values to show through the dyed wool and by keeping the colours soft. While light to medium values work best for this technique a splash of dark value will add life to the overall panel.
