Copper Illuminations

Event: Jackson Stitchery Guild Chapter EGA

Technique:  Silk and Metal embroidery on canvas

Proficiency Level:  Intermediate

Class Description:

The bright copper draws the eye in as we contemplate images of the past seasons in stylized forms and patterns. The students will explore new and traditions techniques in silk and metal.

Working with canvas filling stitches we will bring the work of traditional canvas work into the 21st century. Copper sheeting with embellishment is used to create the focal point of the design. Goldwork applications and beadwork add to the beauty of the needlework.
