About the event


Explore  stitching as a drawing technique by combining machine and hand  stitching with different types of Sulky® water soluble stabilizers. Use  sewing to  create lines and dynamic textures, focusing on constructing stitched  and mixed media surfaces using machine embroidery and water soluble  stabilizer in a variety of ways to create lace-like structures where  stitch holds the piece together. Along with threads,  experiment with combining an assortment of materials like plastics,  papers, and yarns to create a variety of samples exploring different  texture and colour combinations. You will be encouraged to express and  grow your own ideas to create one-of-a-kind stitched  3D sculptures, wall works or wearable art pieces, depending on your  interest. No experience is necessary but basic sewing machine operation  skills will be helpful. You will be required to bring a familiar and  reliable sewing machine in good working order.
