Registration Deadline: February 28
Explore the art of embroidery by creating your expressive pattern ideas. Various techniques will be taught, including how to make a repetitive design, design motifs, and the benefits of working with embroidery. We will then decide how to transform our drawings into bead embroidery designs adding dimensionality and embellishment. Finally, we will look at various bead embroidery examples to gather inspiration for our final pieces.
After studying textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design, Alyssa Brieanne started an embroidery and textile studio. All designs begin with a hand-drawn image or painting that is then translated into embroidery. Each piece is a unique color and material investigation, incorporating textures and embellishments. Her work is whimsical, colorful, and playful. She is inspired by folk art and vintage textiles.
Any article of clothing if students want to embellish on their piece. Beads and embroidery floss. The instructor will provide fabric pieces to sample techniques.
