The third installation in the series of classes that comprise Back to Basics The Right Way: Bad Habits Broken Here steps it up a notch. Here the goal is to take all of the techniques and tools reviewed in the first two classes and incorporate them into more difficult stitching. Added embellishment to the canvas through needle lace, cut and drawn work, and blackwork, and the different methods of combining them all will be practiced. Textures, directional stitching, combination of threads, choosing the number of threads based on weight of the stitch, stitches from Brazilian tapestry work, overlapping stitches and more will be covered in this class.
As always, the student will work each stitch as Tony describes best practices, works with each student, tells stories and encourages fun through needle work.
Registration for Back to Basics Level III requires completion of Back to Basics I and II.
Proficiency Level: All
