Floorcloth Sampler Workshop

Floorcloth: Hand-painted area rugs started in 18th century England are customizable alternatives to traditional rugs. They are water resistant and easy to clean.
In this fun one-day class, you will create your own customized art area rug. We will work on a prepared 24” X 36” cotton canvas. You will learn a variety of techniques to complete your first floorcloth in class and leave with the knowledge of how to make more after the class.
Most supplies included (Note about supplies not included: You will need to protect your floorcloth with polyurethane after the class and during the class you may wish to supply your own interior house paint to match your home).
Instructor: Debbie Minns
DEBBIE MINNS of Hunt, Texas, has recently retired from a career in non-profit arts administration to devote her time to her own art. She has worked for prestigious community art organizations like Kerr Arts and Cultural Center, The Rockport Center for the Arts and Hill Country Arts Foundation. While working she found time to create many works which have been selected for competitive regional shows and won numerous awards including several “Best in Show” honors. Debbie says of her art, “My art is simply an exclamation of my love of nature. I enjoy taking a small thing, whether it is an apple or a wildflower, and by painting it larger and bolder than life, draw attention to the beauty of that small object that might otherwise be overlooked. By enlarging the subject, I create an abstraction by leaving parts off the page. If my artwork has a ‘trademark’, it would be this unusual composition of placing the interest near the edges and corners. Basically, my art is about sharing things I find beautiful and interesting.” Her art ranges from large to small, pastel to mixed watermedia, and realistic to non-representational but will always feature high contrast, interesting compositions and bold, exciting color.
