Drawing through Stitch workshop with Camban Studio from DAS
Spend the weekend ‘Drawing with Stitch’ with an embroidery workshop. Participants will complete this course with an understanding of how to sew over a dozen different embroidery stitches that can be used in a variety of ways. Using the techniques learnt during the workshop you will create an individual embroidered artwork.
Throughout the weekend, participants will learn how to draw with stitch using a variety of embroidery stitching techniques which involve; outline, border, detached and filling stitches.
Whilst developing your own sample of stitch techniques, Camban Studio will also share with you several examples of work created by inspirational stitch artists working with such techniques.
Following this, you will be introduced to both concepts of colour and composition. You are then invited to design your own composition using the techniques learnt.
Together you will plan your own designs with the aim to produce your own embroidered artwork. The workshop will finish with a group feedback session reflecting on the artworks you have individually created.
