Stitched lines and textures can enrich and transform all kinds of drawing. We’ll explore the expressive, endless possibilities of hand-stitched marks on fabric and other stitchable materials. Demonstrations and guided exercises will encourage students to develop a repertoire of stitches and ideas that best enhance their own work.
