With elegant poetry and a glimmer from down the glittering corridors of an age long past comes a glimpse of life about which we can but dream. Giving new interpretation to designs of the seventeenth century and blending them with the silk and metal of the twenty-first, on Jacobean Fantasy with Kay Stanis, we will create an exquisite floral design on silk fabric with detached sheer fabric.
Techniques include working Battlement couching, Burden stitch, chipping and “S”ing. Soft twist silks in solid and overdyes will be combined with braids, crimped purl, check purl, and pearl purl. For dimensional effects we will work the detached elements separately on sheer fabric in the creation of this exquisite embroidery.
Students will be encouraged to use their own ideas in color and stitch interpretations.
