In this workshop I, Hanna, will show you how to create an Artist Trading Card† (it is a miniature pieces of art) on fabric, how to play with some free-form stitching, create mixed media embroidery by painting on fabric, and then how to finish your lovely textile art piece!
We will be working with the symbol of the Heart, but you can choose another simple shape, and work with your own favorite colors. Free-form embroidery is very loose and freeing, and once you know the basics – the sky is the limit.
Stitch with Love is a Mixed Media Embroidery Workshop for everyone who wants to be inspired to try stitching, or get back into it after a dry-spell. You will get a taste of a little bit of everything when it comes to working on fabric. In the inspirational videos I encourage you to start straight away, just to get you going on your own piece of miniature textile art.† I also share what kind of threads I like best, how I store my ATC:s and more.
You will get a lot of inspiration that will last you for a long time from this little workshop.
A little about ATC:s
We will be embroidering small, finished art pieces. I love the Artist Trading Card format, called ATC for short, and hope you will too. It makes your small embroidery experiments into something “finished”, tangible and artful, which sometimes can be the hardest part when you dive into free-form embroidery. Where will this thing you’ve made end up and what will it become? Also, itís super fun to use the ATC as a way to explore a theme or an idea, like I do with the heart in this class. More information about what ATC:s are in the workshop!
