    Web of Threads

Once the stitching is complete, the fabric is dissolved away, leaving behind a firm, structured “thread drawing.” Your finished piece of art can look as delicate as a spider web or as opaque as stained glass, and can be hung on the wall or used as the basis of other mixed media art. Longer pieces can be worn as a scarf, smaller pieces can be made into a cuff or brooch.

No experience necessary.
