In this video Richard Box demonstrates how he progresses from drawing to finished textile art work using free hand machine embroidery. Even if you do not do machine embroidery there are all sorts of tips and advice about drawing your design on fabric etc
I took a class in the states with Richard Box in March. He demoed the technique in the video but the class was about his collage methods. It was wonderful. I was lucky to take his drawing class a couple of years ago. I should post a picture of the flower I created on SF.
Thanks for sharing this Sharon.
I have two of his books and was especially happy to acquire Drawing and Design for Embroidery at a used book sale, because it is out of print. I much appreciate his approach, treating embroidery as art and converting art to embroidery.
