For centuries, embroidery has been practiced in many forms as a means of decoration and artistic expression. A single strand of thread can be stitched, twisted, and knotted to create an infinite array of designs. This workshop has been conceived to help participants move beyond stitching from a pre-designed kit and confidently develop their own creativeembroidery practice.
Participants will be guided through a series of exercises and prompts which have been designed to unlock creativity, connect the senses of sight and touch, and invite mindfulness and playfulness in embroidery practice.
By varying materials and the length and spacing of a few simple stitches, an endless assortment of line, texture and form can be created. Learning to “sketch” with thread, participants will experiment with meandering lines and creating intentional marking to produce a work of abstract art.
