“Autumn Kaleidoscope” is a study in String Art and “Spirograph” type stitches. When the design is finished it begins to take on the look of shards of coloured glass, which one would see while looking through a Kaleidoscope. The student will put the Star Stitch/Smyrna grid in place as pre-stitching. There are over 50 different stitches including various types of Jessicas, Amadeus, Sprats Head, Balloon, Waffles, and Chilly Hollow in this piece. Techniques include Bargello, Diaper Patterns, and Laid Fillings. The piece is further embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls. This class will appeal to those students who would like to try new techniques while challenging themselves by mastering complex canvaswork stitches. This is for the Intermediate/Advanced stitcher.
Threads used include Kreinik and Threadworx Metallics, Vineyard Silk, Caron Impressions, Perle Cotton, Overdyed Perle Cotton, Rainbow Gallery Neon Rays, Neon Rays+, Silk Lame Braid 18, Very Velvet, Petite Frosty Rays and Soy Lustre Shadows. The colour palette is Autumn colours of orange, yellow, copper, purple and turquoise.
This is a 2 day class with prework. Contact Lorene for details.
