Embroidery on Paper

June 8

with Anne Warburton

Create a collaged background, then learn tricks to embroider, enhancing the composition with contrast, texture and more.

Learn dynamic approaches to embroidery on paper. In the morning we will create a collaged background of papers, old photos, paint, nature inks, and other materials. In the afternoon we will learn the tips & tricks of hand stitching onto our paper backgrounds to enhance our composition. We will discuss various stitch types that work well, line weight, contrast, colours, and texture. Artworks are suitable for cards, book covers, framing and more.
