Line is an essential component of all textile and surface art. When used effectively, line and mark-making convey texture, tone, form, movement, and mood. With Drawn to Stitch by your side, learn creative uses of line in embroidery and textile art.
Artist and teacher Gwen Hedley shares a series of exercises designed to explore line's potential as well as develop your creativity.
