This class will begin with a small introduction to a few established contemporary artists using embroidery as a medium for their work in order to understand and learn the varied embroidery techniques they utilize in their practice. Participants will receive demonstrations from a local, working fiber artist in traditional and contemporary embroidery techniques during each session. Because of the time intensive nature of embroidery some outside work will be required but by the end of the session each participant will have at least 4 completed embroideries to show along with a plethora of working knowledge they can use to grow and refine their craft.
In this class you will work non-objectively and focus on non-representational imagery. We will also experiment with fabric paint and patterned fabrics as appliqué/collage.
Beginners are welcome! No previous sewing or embroidery experience is required. A basic knowledge/understanding of drawing would be helpful but not necessary.
Taryn Singleton received her BA in studio arts and a minor in women and gender studies from the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina and her MFA in painting with a minor emphasis in printmaking from the University of Tulsa. She makes paintings, prints, collages, and embroideries that operate within the same frame of visual intention. Taryn teaches art at Dewey High School, works out of her studio in Bartlesville, and exhibits regionally.
