Jill Kipnis – Shadow Work Workshop

This workday will provide an introduction to the traditional technique of shadow work. Starting with a simple flower or letter motif we will transfer this to a sheer fabric and practise working the design in herringbone stitch. With Jill’s help we will then consider more modern ways of using shadow work. For example on painted surfaces and in combination with other stitches to produce an embellished shell design or trapping and stitching cloth pieces between two layers of sheer fabric to produce geometric designs.
