Description

Sat. April 20: Hand-stitched Portraits, at Lark Studio
10am-4pm
Lisa Craig, Instructor & Textile Artist

A day in the country at Lark Studio will give you the time and place you've been looking for to jumpstart your creative life.

This unique workshop will teach you the basics of bringing a photograph or drawing into a hand-embroidered work of art. Learn the subtle techniques of turning thread and cloth into a portrait of someone (or something) important and meaningful to you. Students need to bring a photograph or drawing that they will use for the portrait. The subject could be human, an animal, a plant, or an inanimate subject. It is suggested that students bring several photos or drawings. The subject should be clear and easy to trace. We will be simplifying the original photo or drawing and you will learn the technique to make almost any photograph or image into a hand-embroidered panel.

Class materials kit included (fabric, needles, threads) to make one approx. 9"x9" embroidered panel.
Vegetarian lunch provided!
$85 per person.

*Students should have some experience with hand sewing and embroidery for this portrait workshop.

You may like to purchase Sue Spargo's classic, Creative Stitching, as a continuing reference.
