Hosted by: Peters Valley School of Craft
September 2-3, 2017
19 Kuhn Road, Layton NJ

Instructor: Joetta Maue
Come explore basic embroidery techniques and how to apply them to “drawings” using direct drawing, transfer and projection. This will be both a technical skills class and an idea development class. We will discuss stitch, color and materials choices while learning and exploring traditional techniques of drawing such as contour, gesture, hatching and texture through the stitch. This is a great class for beginners up to advanced students in embroidery. We will go over all the basics but all the conceptual and drawing skills can be applied to any skill level.
