Embroidering Natural & Urban Landscapes
This course is available for very advanced students only, who completed the “Plant your own garden with stitches” course in the 2023 spring semester.
You will choose between natural and urban landscape projects or, if you wish to do a bit more homework, you could do both projects simultaneously. You will be learning how to interpret the lines and surfaces of a landscape with variety of stitches combined into
structures. Different textures of stitches can wonderfully express different areas of a landscape: grassy hills, meadows, fields, water, rock formations and wisps of clouds. In the case of an urban landscape you will discover many ways of featuring buildings and other architectural constructions of the project via stitching. The students will need to provide their own materials and tools for the course. The students and the tutor will decide together what kind of natural and urban landscape we will be working on over the 10 week course.
