Penland School of Craft: Stitched Perspective with Nick DeFord and Katherine Diuguid

AUGUST 11-23, 2019

Nick DeFord & Katherine Diuguid
Stitched Perspective

This workshop will push the basic stitches of embroidery to new limits, finding ways to expand the texture and scope of thread. Along with mastering embroidery fundamentals, we’ll also challenge the boundaries of scale and color theory, stitch onto alternative materials, and give careful consideration to concept and meaning. We’ll look to both antiquity and mythology for inspiration as we consider the historical traditions and cultural connotations of embroidery. All levels. Code 06TA
