COLLIGRAPHY TO EMBROIDERY
Tutor: Marina Soria
Calligraphy is just like embroidery needs, similar skills and shares the same patience. We will try different calligraphic tools, mainly broad edge nibs. Play with the tools to design letters, drawings and frames. Finally, we will elaborate a sketch or monogram that will be transferred onto fabric to be embroidered.
Mon 16 – Thur 19 march 2020
Tutor: Marina Soria
Blending calligraphy and the textile arts. Inspired by traditional textiles search for the colour scheme, predominant & complimentary colours and accents. Analyse their design, character of line and drawings, texture and pattern in order to mingle and blend calligraphy with the textile arts. Most of the workshop will be done on paper with calligraphy, embroider & paper weaving.
