Class Description: Fans open and bright blossoms blend with the winter pine inviting us to celebrate the past and follow the new growth into the future. We will combine the elegance of traditional oriental design with Japanese and Western techniques as the new world of silk and metal needlework opens before us.
For dimensional effects we will be using felt and stitch padding techniques. Japanese embroidery techniques of stamen effect and modified flax leaf lattices are combined with superimposed embroidery. Goldwork techniques of cutwork and many couching variations will be employed as we explore the ways to bring together East and West.
