Former Dream Layers Student Work

Most Supplies Provided! Enjoy creating a hand stitched meditative collage as theresa shares the secrets behind her Quirky Embroidery artworks. Learn ways to use hand dyed fabrics (including doilies and textured fabrics) to assemble a background collage and simple embroidery stitches and “stitch meditation” style sewing to transform that layered base and a focal image into a fiber work of art. Students will be provided a choice from several images created by theresa mARTin, or if you have created your own digital collages and have an image you’d like to provide, you may email us to make arrangements. If you already know a lot of stitches, wonderful! If you don’t know how to embroider or sew, three simple hand stitches will be taught (basic sewing skills are all that’s needed to do the embroidery/sewing). Your registration fee includes a $10  kit fee, which includes your choice of digital collage art,  a variety of hand dyed fabrics, and trims, regular cotton embroidery threads in a wide range of colors and metallic Japanese threads in many colors.

Student Supplies: please bring a 6-inch diameter embroidery hoop and embroidery needles (Tulip Needles are available for purchase at Artistic Artifacts) with you to class. Optional supplies (no need to purchase if you don’t have): your own hand dyed fabrics, doilies and trims, Tentakulum and/or Wonderfil Specialty Threads and small beads, buttons, charms, etc. that can be sewed onto your mixed media piece. Visit Theresa’s blog to view her Quirky Embroideries for inspiration.

  1. This looks like a workshop/class that would be right up my alley! I do wish that somebody here in CT would have you do a workshop!!! This looks educational AND fun – AND have a terrific piece to show for it! I’m envious of all your lucky students!

  2. Such beautiful work! It’s inspiring me to get back to my own unfinished piece to finish — highly recommend the class!

  3. If you go to Conn for a class I will travel there- it is much closer for me! Oh Theresa, Your students work is beautifully crafted under your guiding talent creativity teaching! I would so love to learn from you as well! Maybe an online class? hint hint teeheehee
    hugs,Jackie
