Level 2 Studies in Design and Experimental Stitch – Bergamot

In November of 2014, our center held an Open House  to show the artwork of students as they were completing their last 5 days of course work. The next few blogs will show each student’ artwork. Here’s a link to the blog I posted just before their Open House in November. The link gives an overview of the course and a few more pictures.. Congratulations to the Bergamot group for their dedication and hard work in the completion of this course.  Gail

Ann Rogers Artist Statement

The most valuable part of taking classes at the Gail Harker Creative Studies Center is learning to ‘see’.  I now find designs wherever I go and my vacation photos are close-ups of interesting objects and their lines. I have learned about historical stitchery from a variety of countries  and gained an appreciation of the work that has been done for centuries. New techniques in both hand and machine embroidery have been developed. With the creation of numerous samples, I now understand the value and necessity of making samples before creating a resolved piece. I am confident that I can move forward in my design and embroidery.

    Ann is on the button with the statement that Gail’s classes teach you how to ‘see’, to find pattern, color, design…everywhere.

    Yes, Ann, you hit that right on the nose. After studying with Gail, I look at pattern, design and color in EVERYTHING! And my photos show that. Learning to see is the key. Your print to stitch of the pot on water’s edge is quite lovely.
