Embroidered Rusty Textile Collage Workshop
Combine embroidery, weathered bits of metal and rusted fabric
to create a one of a kind textile collage.
Learn 4 basic embroidery stitches (running, back, seed and the french knot) that will be used as decorative elements and also to attach a variety of items including metal washers, nails, stained cheesecloth, fabric strips, yarn and buttons to pre-rusted fabric. Let the shape, color and texture of these items as well as the pattern on the fabric help guide you in the freestyle composition of your collage.
