This week just gone I ran a week of 5 evening sessions exploring drawing with stitch, focusing on the figure and architecture. We had very enthusiastic students who worked really hard. The 3 hour sessions just weren’t long enough! We started off drawing from some of the buildings in the area,( just a chance for a really good look!) Then began some initial samples of drawing with the sewing machine in black onto white cotton. Firstly drawing some architectural details from photographs and then drawing figures. We then added some coloured sections using bondaweb and finally all the students came up with their own compositions and created all very different stitched drawings of figures in an architectural space. It was lot of of work to get done, but they all managed to very nearly complete their final pieces!
