MIXED MEDIA EMBROIDERY  Do you like to juxtapose unlikely materials and processes to create compelling imagery and objects? To honour memory and place while working with your hands? Join us and learn how to embroider on the fragile surfaces of prints, photographs and other unusual objects. Using the simple tools of needle and thread we will add texture, dimension and meaning to favourite imagery. Students will bring photos, magazine pages, posters, or other paper imagery for consideration. We’ll explore personal themes and surface designs and then stitch them to life. The properties of paper are different from fabric and require adaptations to traditional embroidery methods. We will cover how to approach this as well as how to embroider on unlikely surfaces like goose eggs, boxes, or any other object that allows us to puncture holes for stitching. I will share my approaches with demos and samples. We will have time to experiment with a few different approaches. Work of other embroidery fiber artists will be discussed too. Beginner-level experience with embroidery is helpful but not necessary.
