About The Class
Instructor: Jennifer Moss
Medium: 2D Fiber
Workshop Title: Embroidery Expanded
Expand your definitions of embroidery by applying traditional techniques to a range of materials, including wire, metal, paper, and wood. We will begin by creating a sampler of traditional embroidery stitches on fabric, including needlepoint, cross-stitch, Blackwork/Goldwork, and sashiko. We will then find new, unexpected ways to apply these methods, as you begin to design personal projects. Perfect for fiber artists who want to push the boundaries of their stitching, or for artists from other craft media, such as wood, ceramics, and metals, who want to explore how stitching can work as both a surface decoration and a construction method.
Materials list will be posted here by May 14.
