By Heather Kerley

Learn to apply the principles of abstract art to making embroidery. Develop a free-flowing approach to embroidery that emphasizes form, color, line, texture, pattern, composition, and process. Use different stitches to create interesting marks, textures, and movement in the work, and explore a variety of materials including different found fabrics, beads, floss, and yarn. Take an entire project from beginning to end, finishing either in the hoop or stretched over a canvas for easy display. Some experience with embroidery or with abstract art making is strongly suggested.
