Suzanne GummowEmbellishment Galore

Don’t we just love that extra embellishment? 

Embellishment:  a decorative detail or feature added to something to make it more attractive

 In this workshop you will experiment, play and work on a series of embellished exercises and samplers that can be added to your quilts, art works, mixed media, books, or clothing using a variety of manipulation techniques using both hand and machine stitch.

Every day you will be creating a few exercises and samplers covering some of these techniques

- cords, tassels, braids, fringes, motifs, beading, fabric beads, stitching as decoration and more. These will be directed exercises to increase your creative juices and you will see how embellishment will or can transform your work. We will discuss how you can add these into your own Artwork for future use. 

You will learn new techniques, design and colour elements and also discover unexpected combinations and constraints. This may give you a new direction for your future Artworks.

It will be a challenge to your creative self and I promise it will be FUN so join me…
