Putting it All Together with Anne Berk
Learn to combine techniques—intarsia, fair isle, duplicate stitch, and embroidery to customize projects in new ways. Starting with a basic motif, you will decide how to bring it to life with the skills you know. The class will concentrate on intarsia and fair isle for basic fabric, duplicate stitch and embroidery for embellishment. We will learn how to read a chart, and adapt it for embroidery. Many samples, as well as the swatches produced in class, will provide inspiration for creativity.
