ART RESIDENCY

SU-CASA Week 10 - 11: Thread Art

These last few weeks we’ve been focused on embroidery. We started with samplers to learn a variety of stitches and now we are start on our artwork.

To start, I asked everyone to write out a recent dream. It was hard for most people, myself included, to remember a dream, but it did help many of them think of some imagery and get started on their piece. Next, they picked out fabric to use as the backdrop to their piece. They picked out colors and started translating their image onto their fabric.

They also used sequins and beads to embellish their work. 

 

I can’t wait to see the final projects!
