Sashiko Embroidery: Mark Making with Thread

Date: April 22 and 29
Time: 1 – 4 pm
Registration Deadline: April 22
Location: GAAC

This course will explore the traditional art of Japanese Sashiko style embroidery by encouraging students to create their own expressive pattern ideas influenced by ancient Sashiko designs. A short mark-making exercise with unconventional materials on paper will result in students creating their unique design that can be transferred onto an item of clothing from home or onto fabric. Various Embroidery Stitches will be taught to add more depth and interesting textures to the final piece. An embroidery sampler can also be made through optional homework assignments so students can experience an opportunity to create more complicated stitch techniques.

Since graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2016, Alyssa Brieanne has started her own line of embroidered goods.

Her work is influenced by traditional folk art and the history of embroidery. She loves to teach individuals fiber arts and the benefits of the tactile interaction thread and fabric provide. alyssabrieanne.com

I will provide Thread and Fabric and Embroidery Needles. Bring from home: Scissors, a tool box or bag to place your work and article of woven clothing you would want to embroider on. For example a jean jacket (we could add a design to the pocket of a pair of blue jeans.
