I returned from my Master Art Series Friday night. We spent the week exploring how the value of thread affects the fabric it’s stitched onto. One concept everyone quickly understood: to make a fabric recede into the background, stitch over it in a lighter value of its same color. Another technique: to dull a fabric down, stitch over it with its complement. As usual, it was a challenging week mentally and physically. Class ran from 8:30 am to 4:30-5:00 pm, and after dinner, we all returned to the classroom to finish the day’s assignments. While I worked no later than 9:00 pm, some worked much later. I’ll be posting some photos after I finish with the Portland Art Museum’s latest show.
As promised, here is more Native American designer wear with a focus on runway garments. This photo shows the four designs that greet you as you enter. I want to know where you get space-shuttle glass. Is it in the headpiece?
