Programme Synopsis Where photography meets embroidery, stories unfold and magic happens. Photo-embroidery is an amazing way to elevate a two-dimensional image into a tactile and even three-dimensional one. Students will be guided through creating or selecting an image for their intervention, followed by selecting the types of materials for it. Next they will learn to embroider using an array of flat and raised stitches. The potential for a photo-embroidered project to tell stories is immense. See how embroidery can change the qualities of an image and even add a new layer of meaning to it. Consider the compositional qualities that an image offers and narratives that it can convey. This workshop provides a good balance of digital media and tactile art-making processes to suit the interests of both hands-on and tech-savvy learners.
