Intarsia: Thinking Outside the Box - Virtual April 7th
A 2-hour group class with Florence Spurling taught virtually via Zoom. Intarsia is a very creative technique in which patterns can be built in an unlimited number of colours, much as an artist paints a picture. The resulting fabrications can exhibit outcomes that range from minimalist geometric compositions to pictorial and even figurative works. Patterns and motifs can be as small as a few stitches or span the expanse of the whole accessory or garment. Aside from creative colourwork, you can create intriguing surfaces using yarns that are diverse in texture and weight and explore how intarsia can be combined with numerous different stitch types. By subverting the way you handle the yarns, open structured and lace-like textiles can also be created. In this class, we will start with the basics using two colours, and then expand upon the typical technique in numerous creative ways.
The class will be recorded and available for 2 weeks after the class date.
