Embroidered Text: Monograms & Inscriptions with Sarah Pedlow
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Sarah Pedlow
In this workshop we will explore monograms, signatures, inscriptions, found in folk textiles around the world and fine art. Together we will embroider a monogram on a handkerchief, using a technique called shadow work, which produces an outline on one side of the fabric and broad shaded area on the reverse. It is a popular style used in Lucknow, India, among other places in the world. We'll also look at several ways to stitch handwritten lettering.
All materials are provided but you are more than welcome to bring a cotton or linen blouse, scarf, cloth napkin, or pillowcase of your own to embellish.
No previous experience necessary. Open to adults 16 and over.
