A Stitch Celebration

July 11, 2017

Open House –  Level 2 Studies in Design and Experimental Hand Stitch (class name – Lisianthus)  This past Saturday on July 8th, 2017 we hosted an Open House at our studio for 8 students, from Canada and U.S.A. This was their 5th and last session.   It was a working session as usual but this time Penny Peters and I  (Gail Harker) demonstrated a number of different ways to present small Stitched Artwork for display. Students put some of these ideas into practice for the layouts at the Open House.  Visitors viewed samples, stitch books, a beaded book, sketchbooks and other works of art. It was a great opportunity to see inspiring techniques and artistic explorations.

  Certificate Students: Pat Ross, Therese Stein, Debra Jusak, Bobbie Herrick, Jane Clark, Katherine Kasony – Quinn, Laura Elmore and Annemarie Andresen. Tutors Gail Harker, Penny Peters

Keep watching as I will be placing 8 new blogs to show each person’s artwork in the next little while. There are a few photos included below.  More about Level 2 Studies in Design and Experimental Hand Stitch:  Each session is 5 days with 5 sessions stretching out over 1 1/2 years. Have a look at the description of the next course – Jade (class name) coming up on our calendar.
