In this class we will be creating thread landscapes with hand embroidery. We will begin by reviewing basic embroidery stitches, discussing background fabrics and exploring other applications to augment the stitching. The second part of the class will be devoted to sketching and stitching on individual landscapes. Hand sewing supplies such as threads, needles, hoops/frames, scissors and extra fabric will be provided by the instructor. Come with your photos or ideas to transfer to the background fabric.
