Judy Wilford: Stitch as Mark – “Take a Simple Stitch” 4-5 November

$260.00

STITCH AS MARK – “TAKE A SIMPLE STITCH”

All artists, regardless of genre, use mark to develop a personal language within their work. Marks are used in specific ways giving emphasis, detail or value to the development of a work. Some use a pencil or pen, some a brush but WE will take a needle, a thread and a simple stitch.
Using Straight Stitch in its many and varied ways we will develop a “Spot Sampler” to describe written words – make a personal hidden language.
Using simple stitches, you will design and develop a small work (20x20cms) based on either a metaphor, of your own choosing such as, “The Moon is a Balloon” or a three-line poem, such as, “dry land: storm clouds, a creek runs.”
The workshop will suit all levels of experience. A fabric kit will be supplied.

Requirement List –
As mentioned in the Workshop description you will develop a work approx. 20x20cms based on a metaphor OR a 3-line poem of your choosing. Write it down and bring it with you along with any ideas, fabrics, items that may relate.
I will be bringing a variety of fabric suitable for backgrounds and highlights as well as other ‘stuff’ from the “Back of a Wardrobe”?

NOTE: Early in the workshop the stitching can be hand worked or done on a hoop of approx. 13-14cms dia. The later part can be done similarly but I prefer to use a rigid frame. If you use the frame make sure it is laced and ready to work on and bring a 20x20cms + piece of fine wadding and clamps to attach it to the table.
