Katherine Diuguid is a studio artist specializing in hand embroidery, dressmaking, and textiles. She held a tenure-track position at North Carolina State University (2012-2017) until deciding to focus fully on her studio embroidery. Diuguid exhibited work and taught embroidery workshops nationally and internationally. She was awarded artist residencies at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Penland School of Craft, and Chateau Orquevaux (France) as well as working on special projects with Durham Cathedral (UK) and the Art Institute of Chicago. Her current work investigates color theory and color interactions within stitching, especially goldwork embroidery.
In this workshop students will study a landscape of their choice and develop a series of stitched color studies inspired by their chosen landscapes. Within the workshop, you will analyze the landscape’s color relationships and break them down to understand various ways to build color perceptions with stitching that reflect the landscape colors. Open to all skill levels.
