Botanical Specimens 101 with Ann Wood / Saturday, April 6th / 10-6pm
Join us for a full day of stitching botanical specimens with Ann Wood! Ann has broken this workshop up into two different classes so that students are able to learn as much as possible in each day. Saturday will focus on fungi, root systems and seed pods.
You will create elegant stitched seed pods with realistic root systems and invent wild and strange species of mushrooms. We will explore basic soft sculpture techniques including working with spheres and creating and modifying patterns. I’ll share my techniques for creating forms and texture with textiles, wire, paper and other simple materials
I’m bringing everything you need, including some of my favorite supplies, top secret tips and techniques and some treasures from my collection of antique textiles.
Basic sewing skills are needed, we will be stitching mostly by hand.
Coffee/tea, lunch and apertifs served.
