Needlepoint classes often fall into broad categories: they either teach you many different stitches or they concentrate on one technique.
There’s nothing wrong with this. In a stitch class, you’ll get so many new ideas to spiff up your needlepoint projects. In a technique class you’ll get a chance to learn, and practice one thing in depth.
That’s what makes this class so different. You’ll get a taste of many different techniques. Techniques you can put to use right away in your other projects.
You could think of it as a sampler, but instead of samples of each technique, you’ll do them within the context of an actual needlepoint piece, this dramatic amaryllis by Piet Mondrian.
As you can see from this details you’ll learn:
- how to use textured stitches in needlepoint
- using outlining techniques for definition
- padding to create dimension
- pattern darning and shadow stitching
