TEXTILES SUMMER SESSION 7
AUGUST 13–18, 2023
Storytelling Through Eyes
In this embroidery workshop, we’ll explore the art of evoking emotions through the use of color, particularly focusing on the image of the human eye. Taking a nontraditional approach to embroidery, students will learn new methods for creating a realistic eye using a simple color palette and basic stitches. A step-by-step guide will simplify the embroidery process using a painterly approach. Students will learn how to analyze a photo, color block, and blend color to bring their story and emotions to life. All levels. Third-floor textiles studio.
