Join me and explore the world of embroidery. You will experiment with how to develop a personal stitch/mark vocabulary. Use thread as your mark making tool and fabric as your pages. Learn how to and experiment with optical mixing, cross-hatching, shading, gestural marks, scribbling, overlaying marks, creating gradations and building texture. These cloth "pages" will then be bound into an Embroidery Sampler Book to use for future reference and ideas. You'll leave class with thread, needles and a tension hoop so that you can continue your exploration of this captivating process at home.
