A set of four, monthly classes during which you will explore translating photos into hand embroidery creating personal textile artwork. The classes teach you a range of techniques to create designs from photographs (no drawing skills necessary!) and how to transfer the designs on to fabrics and other materials. You will discover how to create suitable backgrounds to add to the narrative of your embroidered photograph, not just in fabric but other materials as well, including paper, wood and more. A selection of textile techniques including applique and fabric manipulation will be taught for you to consider using in your artwork. You will also explore ways of embroidering your interpretation of your photograph, using a range of stitches and threads. By the end of the classes, you will have learnt a range of hand embroidery techniques and stitches as well as created at least one finished stitched photograph that is unique to you. Suitable for all levels of experience. Please bring with you a selection of photographs you would like to work from (printed if possible), pens, pencils and a basic sewing kit if you have one. Most materials are included, but as your design develops you may need to purchase some materials to complete it.
