From Digital Prints to Stitched Art

Every so often we offer From Digital Prints to Stitched Art, a short special interest course in which we work with original photographs to translate into a stitched piece.  Digital printing on  fabric is not a new technique, but the quality of print has greatly increased in recent years and provides endless possibilities.

 Small samples are worked within class and careful attention is paid to composition. The color and size of threads used can make a great difference to the mood of the piece.

Enhancing existing images through the use of sheer fabric layers can improve the quality of depth. Textures come alive through the use of thoughtfully placed stitches.

The repetition of shapes from within the original print can create interest and dimension. To learn more about this course, next being offered 24 – 26 May 2011 view our Expanded Course Description, recently placed on our website.
