Online learning with Deanne

My goal is to teach you everything I know about the beautiful art of rug hooking. I have courses to suit all levels of rug hooking from novice to 

the experienced.

Each course you purchase allows you the freedom to complete the course on your own time, and are yours to keep. When you purchase a course you get immediate access. There are even a few FREE courses!! 

What do people say about taking my online courses...

"This class has been amazing! Each month it has presented challenges to be met, items for thoughtful consideration, inspiration from other artists and good, solid instruction on how to introduce new techniques into my hooking. The coaching interviews have brought insight into process, motivation, inspiration and design.This course has taken on new meaning for me in this time of pandemic . It has changed my focus from the chaos and confusion of the US into a focus on telling my journey through this time through the medium of rug hooking. Thank you for saving my sanity and my soul!" Review by Nina S.


"Deanne is so enthusiastic and informative! She shares her rug hooking and artistic knowledge with simplicity and encouragement. I’ve purchased several of her online courses. Each are full of design, style, and rug hooking how-to. They have all been well worth the purchase. I truly feel they are helping guide me to be a better rug hooker and artist." Review by Betty D

"A very good investment!When I signed up for this 12-month program I had no way of knowing the breadth of content and wealth of knowledge I would acquire through it. It has greatly surpassed my expectations as I increasingly feel more rounded in my artistic approach to rug hooking and equipped with greatly improved techniques. The growth has come from the information shared within each module but especially from the community of sharing resulting from the Harbour. It has been my COVID gift." Review by Janice G

Hooking Painterly

"What a line up of videos and posts for this class! I have enjoyed it twice now and have yet to start my rug but I will get to it!! In the meantime I can use tips and techniques with so many of my other hooking projects. Lots to absorb and enjoy and the class is yours to keep forever!" xo Eileen

Where the Orchard Blooms

"I can't wait till the course starts! I know I'm going to learn a lot and I already love the rug. I've done many of Deanne's courses and I haven't been disappointed yet!" Review by Karen L 

Studio Workshops

People come from all over North America, and sometimes even further to attend my studio workshops.

For me they are a chance to work closely with you to help build your confidence as a rug hooker. It is a chance to immerse yourself in your rug hooking for a few days, a retreat into a world of colour and creativity. 

*For now we will are not planning to host any in studio workshops in 2021. 

I want people to experience the peace & joy of creativity and rug hooking. I know what a difference it made in my life and what a difference it can make in yours.

I love watching you learn and open up to the creative possibilities that are inside you.
