Broderie d’or

Glitter & Gogh: Étude of the Starry Night  (10h)

avec Nathalie Dupuis

Inspired by the swirling sky of Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting, this intermediate level design explores various couching methods over gilt and cotton threads, the application of gold leaf, and the wrapping of pearl purl mixed with some basic embroidery stitches. Glittering metal threads couched with Van Gogh’s preference of complementary colours creates a vibrant feel with the soft curves of a night sky punctuated with bright stars.

Inspiré du tableau de Van Gogh, La nuit étoilée, ce cours explore les techniques de couchure avec fils d’or et de coton, l’application de feuille d’or et de jaseron, ainsi que quelques points de bases de broderie. Un tableau composé de fils metallisé en couchure mélangés au couleurs complémentaires du peintre créent un ciel vibrant ponctué d’étoiles.
