FSAD 3250 Color and Surface Design of Textiles

Embroidery

Embroidery is explored in a variety of ways in 3250. We begin with samplers that require presenting a selection of stitches taught during class. Color choice comes down to picking one of Johannes Itten’s seven forms of color contrast. In the Fall of 2020, we explored optical blending. Optical blending is a method of color mixing achieved by placing small bits of color next to each other. The colors blend together from a distance to create a new color.
