Embroidery as Drawing


Embroidery as Drawing


For nearly as long as people have made cloth, they have embroidered it. Early examples of embroidery have been found in Egypt, China, Peru, and Central Asia, with the earliest example dating from the second millennium BC. It’s no wonder embroidery has enjoyed tremendous longevity; embroidery can be the manifestation of cultural aesthetics, a way to mark important historical events, or an expression of personal creativity.

This class invites you to explore and express your creativity by using embroidery as a drawing medium. We’ll practice nine stitches, sketch simple drawings, and transform a sketch into meaningful embroidery. This class will give you the confidence to break free from pre-printed embroidery kits and express yourself with needle, thread, and cloth.
