This will be a more fine arts based course where the students explore thinking in artistic ways and learn to understand artistic and creative thought processes through stitch. Practically, this course will focus mainly on combining hand and machine embroidery with polychromatic screenprinting to create a layered, complex, and personally meaningful piece. Week-to-week students will develop ways of expressing their creativity and thoughts through textile arts.

Materials fee: $20 (includes use of screens, emulsion, fibre reactive dyes, water soluble fabrics, some threads and fabrics)

Please come to class with 3 meters white cotton, embroidery thread in various colours, 3 spools coloured thread (your choice) and embroidery needles

Juliana Scherzer – is a textile artist working out of Toronto, Canada with a Bachelor of Craft and Design, focused in Textiles from Sheridan College. Juliana works primarily in free-motion embroidery on water soluble fabric, creating 3D structures out of thread. Her work seeks to reflect the duality of the known and unknown places of textiles in our lives, a concept she seeks to explore through various themes, particularly within biology. Juliana has worked with children teaching them about art for three years and wants to go forward teaching people the value of art and craft in our lives, through sharing her knowledge and learning from others.
