Workshop 2 - June 26th, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Surfaces: Embellishment Techniques
Basic hand-embroidery stitches, beading and appliqué will be explored as a means to embellish, add texture and re-invent an item of clothing or fiber art piece. Stitches and techniques will be demonstrated and sampled, taking into consideration design elements such as scale, repetition and the various threads with which to make a mark. Participants will then apply one or more of these techniques to create some embellishment magic!

Rose Mary Cullen is a textile artist, and teacher who specialize in contemporary, embroidered textile art. She is based in Dublin, Ireland and Portsmouth, NH. She has a degree in Embroidered Textiles, a Masters in Design History, and is a tutor at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland. She is a member of the Crafts Council of Ireland and the New Hampshire Art Association. All of these experiences come to bear on her work practice, which consists mostly of contemporary embroidered framed pieces but also wearable art using both traditional and modern embroidery techniques. Some works are pictorial with a naive quality. Other pieces are more abstract using stitching, the layering of fabrics, and the incorporation of varied materials to create visual effects.
