Free up and develop line drawing skills working through a series of simple drawing tasks exploring mark making as a creative tool to develop stitch language in free machine stitch techniques.

Draw to stitch, stitch to draw; develop free machine stitch skills through a series of experimental drawing and stitch samples, to increase confidence in the use of line as a language for stitch development in mixed media textiles.

We will consider what stitches can do; can the stitch be overlapped, worked in a line, worked in circles, in blocks, worked in several directions, in layers, be tight or loose, hold down threads or fabrics.
