Drawing with Embroidery
In recent decades a growing community of artists have been engaging embroidery as a drawing tool. Students in this course will learn to master a handful of basic embroidery techniques, and become acquainted with a variety of embroidery materials and tools. In addition, students of Drawing With Embroidery will learn how to strengthen their own drawing skills and translate them to fiber, and will be encouraged to experiment with non-traditional embroidery media and methods, such as incorporating up-cycled fibers and textiles. Each participant will leave this class with unique and personalized works that celebrate the art of drawing with embroidery.
