Face Forward! One day workshop Karol Kusmaul
Instructor will bring samples of her freestyle portrait work, and discuss and demonstrate her processes. Students will layout a background and a portrait, using (and sharing) recycled fabrics. Critique and discussion of facial features, proportions, and light and shadow will follow. Finally, students will be shown the ladder stitch for appliquéing the shapes to the batting with embroidery thread. At the end of this class, students will have a better knowledge of composition, and will feel more confident in portraiture.
