Hand Stitching Continued Summer 2020: Stuffed and Dimensional Forms


Barbara B.: Stuffed forms and cording

This is the final post about the three-session Summer 2020 Hand Stitching Continued class. The focus of this class session was stuffing techniques, including cording and Trapunto. I'm also including here some additional work that was completed and posted after the class was over. I just love watching the ongoing explorations of my very talented students! I will be teaching a five-session version of Hand Stitching Continued through The Art League School starting on January 27. We will cover additional dimensional stitches and a playful ("game") approach to additional fabric manipulation techniques. Click on the highlighted class title for a link to the class.

Here is a small sampler I did of some of stuffing techniques...different approaches to stuffing shapes and adding details.

Barbara B. really took off with stuffed shapes, still working within her circle theme. These plus other samplers were eventually trimmed and attached to a larger fabric piece to create a quilt (see below).

Jill B. designed this aerial landscape ingeniously using cording and Trapunto!

Myania M. continued to develop dimensional forms in fabric and paper inspired by her wasp's nest muse.
