  1. Supply List

By Heather Kerley

Find your personal sense of color confidence while learning to apply color to embroidery art as would a painter using pigments and a palette. Learn the vocabulary of color theory through exercises and embroidery hoop experiments that explore hue, value, tone, and color relationships. Extract palettes from found images and translate them into stitched creations. Open to all levels of embroidery experience.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
