Haystacks of Giverny
Learn a non-traditional approach to quilting and embroidery!
Taking inspiration from Monet’s haystacks, students will learn a non-traditional approach to quilting and embroidery. Digitally printed images will be layered and stitched to create a composition unique to each student. The piece will be worked without a hoop to allow each student’s hand to alter the tension and naturally shift the image. Traditional embroidery stitches will be used in combination with thread mixing techniques. Creative metal embroidery techniques will be introduced to add texture and dimension.
Registration is closed.
