We shall explore a painterly approach to free motion machine stitching working on painter’s canvas to manipulate and change the surface through intensive machining.
Using light and dark colours we shall experiment with different weights of thread to create different textures.
Things to bring:
- ½ metre of painter’s canvas – I shall bring some you can purchase
- A variety of machine threads in different colours – usual dress making weight, fine embroidery weight, hand quilting weight and thicker (I shall bring some for you to try)
- Sewing machine that allows the feed dogs to be lowered, instruction book, foot pedal, lead, all accessories, embroidery/darning foot, spare bobbins, spare machine needles
- Usual sewing kit
- Sketch book/notebook, pen/pencil
