A picture's worth a thousand words. Imagine transforming one of your favorite photos into a hand stitched work of art!
This class will go over the process of transferring a photograph or image of your choice onto fabric -- and then stitching on top of it to create a "painterly style" with embroidery thread. With a laser jet image, apply a solvent using a burnishing method to transfer the ink from the print onto the fabric. Then, receive expert guidance in the process of needle painting, also known as embroidery painting, a hand embroidery technique used to create realistic pictures using a needle and thread. Your individual work, which will require just a little hard work and patience, will turn out beautifully and fully reflect your own personal aesthetic. Take home your creation to show off to friends and family for years to follow!
Note: All materials will be provided.
