Stitching As Drawing

June 24, 2018 – July 7, 2018

Susan Brandeis

This workshop explores ways to capture the spontaneity and gestures of drawing through hand and machine stitching in the creation of drawings on cloth. Students will experiment with optical mixing, color effects, cross-hatching, stippling, contouring, detailing, shading, gradations, gestural marks and scribbling. You will work at large and small scale, layering marks, and building texture. The emphasis of the class is on individual experimentation and development of a personal stitched mark vocabulary. The ability to execute basic hand stitches and operate a sewing machine is helpful. Open to all skill levels.



COURSE FEE: $995
