Drawing with Thread

    

Glean from your daily life to create a one of a kind portrait by creating a "sampler" of embroidery stitches. We will discuss the creative use of diarist writing and daily life documentation to create your own art while looking at examples of contemporary fiber artists and learning traditional stitches and embroidery basics. Students are encouraged to work with found, inherited, or vintage linen as their base.
