Beasts and Animals in Design and Embroidery

June 6, 2018

Designers and Embroiderers alike have used images of their pets or other animals they have observed.  Imagined or real! It amazes me how interesting the forms or shapes are and what fun embroiderers/stitchers in particular have had with these images. Some of the techniques below include: Stump work, Machine embroidery, Even weave hand embroidery, Applique, Crewel Work, Lace, Quilting, Metal thread work, Soft sculpture and Raised Needleweaving.   The artwork is mostly from our students with a few relics from museums.  Thanks to our students for their imaginative renderings.  Gail Harker
