TEACHER:                      Tanya (Tatiana) Knodel from Sudbury, ON. is our Canadian Rug Hooking Artist of the Year. Her rugs are on exhibit at                                            the Museum from May -mid October, 2023. Tatiana was first introduced to rug hooking in 2008 in Sudbury where she                                          learned that rug hooking is not simply about covering floors. In 2009 she attended the Fibre Festival in Nova Scotia                                            and developed an interest in realistic details. For her, rug hooking was like painting and considered herself a self-                                                taught fibre artist. She designs her own rugs but has hooked a few patterns with “Flying Geese” by Thor Hansen her                                          favourite. In 2014 she discovered the art of dyeing wool and is able to get the colour she wants with her background                                          in chemistry. She has been featured in Celebration, Rug Hooking Magazine and many exhibits. Tatiana is a certified                                              teacher of Ontario Hooking Craft Guild and belongs to the group in Sudbury “Rugs on the Rocks”. Her favourite style                                            of rug hooking is a fine cut (#2 and #3) with sculpting, but enjoys all the other styles. She most enjoys making bags                                          that match clothes.

If you need any help or have                                                 questions with it or any other rug hooking project, such as how to hook it, colour plan or whatever, Tatiana will be                                               there to guide you along and answer all your questions. It will be a fun and relaxing day.
