Painting with Thread: Gradient Embroidery with Julia Windom
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Julia Windom
In this class students will explore the art of embroidering with blending thread colors to create realistic gradients and ombre effects. Class will begin with a discussion and demonstration of a few different embroidery stitches, guiding students to blend the colors provided from light to dark using long and short stitches. Following this sample exercise, students will be offered a simple floral motif, learning how to transfer the image onto fabric. The group will be guided through how to approach developing the highlights and lowlights on the image and translate those marks into light and dark colored thread. Students will be guided through the completion of the design with one-on-one support around stitch technique, blending and color-choice.
No previous experience necessary. Open to students 16 & up.
