Master Craftsman: Design for Needlework

$50.00

Our Master Craftsman: Design program differs from other Master Craftsman categories by its very nature. Rather than demonstrating knowledge of a particular technique, candidates use their chosen needlework medium to demonstrate knowledge of specific design principles and elements. All submissions must be original, but wide latitude is allowed in format and interpretation. There is no one right answer. Technical expertise is expected, but is not the only criterion on which submissions are based. Completion of the program demonstrates mastery of the principles and elements of design and their use in creating original work.
