LANDSCAPE IMPRESSIONS

MACHINE STITCH

This class will teach you the techniques you need to create stylized landscapes starting from a photo of a view that inspires you.

In the morning we will look at colour, composition and shape and start to build up the base for the picture using fabric paints and collage. In the afternoon we will stitch, layer and distress the piece.

You should go home with a small piece ready for mounting/framing and the knowledge to create your own landscapes on any scale.
