Art Workshop: The Circle Game (beading, embroidery)
March 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - March 24, 2019 @ 4:00 pm$235 – $255
Circles can be found throughout the natural world and in human designs from diverse cultures and across millennia. Circles appeal to us on so many levels: They are simple and elegant; they’re curved, organic and smooth, with no sharp corners; they evoke a comforting sense of completeness and totality; they’re in the hugs that embrace us and the nests that protect baby birds. Circles are as familiar as the dot of an “i” or the period at the end of a sentence. They come to us in images of the Earth from space. Circles are as tiny as a subatomic particle and as large as a black hole.
In this class we explore and create a sampler of circular motifs in bead embroidery. Working with a wide variety of beads we will learn, design and stitch a diverse range of circular forms that could be used on art quilts, garments and other fiber art.
Some previous embroidery experience is recommended.
