This afternoon workshop is the second half of the Moody Bright Designs embroidery workshop. You are more than welcome to attend the afternoon class without the first class . No previous hand embroidery experience is needed, but a keen interest in drawing and mark making would be beneficial.
This is a celebratory class that honours the work of the late Peter Gibson, who’s embroidered “Artwear” denim jackets will be on display in Fabrications window for the month of March, leading up to a major retrospective of his cross disciplinary work at the Mile End Art Pavillion, 7th – 14th April.
Milou Stella set up Moody Bright Designs – a project that focuses on hand embroidered customisation of second-hand items. As a trained painter (Slade school of art), she plays with contrast, colour and texture. She began “Moody Bright Designs” as a response to concerns about fast fashion and the environment, with an urgent need to slow down and appreciate the process of making something unique and of quality, whilst avoiding waste as much as possible.
Milou will begin the class with a few simple “warm up” excersises in drawing and mark making on paper to get your creativity flowing. For this section feel free to bring a drawing you like or something that inspires you to work with. Milou will then move onto offering advice on how to interpret your drawings into a stitch ready design! If you’ve attended Milou’s morning class “Introduction to hand embroidery stitches” you’ll be able to incorporate some of the stitches learnt in the morning based on your preference.
Each attendee will have 1:1 advice before starting your own project on your denim item or patches and you will have plenty of time for independent work. This is a creative workshop where both independent thinking and personal taste are encouraged and supported.
On completion of the class participants will confidently be able to:
– Understand how to transfer a design onto clothing or cloth
– Creatively explore a range of hand embroidery stitches
– Gain inspiration and develop your own style of drawing with stitches
– Interpret your own drawings / designs into hand embroidery
– Feel inspired to apply the same technique to your own projects
– Pick up some ‘insider’ tips, tricks and approaches from a practicing artist.
Included in this workshop:
– Tissue paper
– Embroidery threads for your project (but please also bring your own, if you have very specific colours in mind!)
– Embroidery Needle
– Embroidery Hoop (if you are just attending the afternoon class. Attendees are provided with a hoop with the morning class)
