The Art of the Stitch
Ottawa School of Art: Adult Interest Workshop
Explore the creative possibilities of hand embroidery with a contemporary twist to this traditional technique. Learn and practise the Six Basic Stitches (Running, Cross, Chain, Blanket, Satin and Fly). Then, after being thoroughly inspired by your fellow participants’ efforts and the work of established textile artists, choose two of the six stitches and create a contemporary ‘sampler’ working on cloth or paper (provided). Participants are also invited to bring an article of clothing, accessory or canvas to work on. Whether you know the basics of hand stitching and want to release your inner artist or you are an artist who wants to add to their mixed media repertoire, this workshop is for you.
