Summer Thread Sketching

I’ve been busy in my tatami room again working on completing pieces for the Tokyo Spidering 東京クローラ exhibition at Hagiso Gallery next month.

I have been using simple embroidery floss to sketch my final designs on the cotton canvas of my hanging scrolls. By using a running stitch with unknotted thread as quick and easy sketch lines they will stay for as long as I need. This way I don’t need to worry about removing any kinds of marks on the fabric and leaves the design open for me to free-hand embroider as I go.

Permanently attaching the hand crocheted flower as a starting point, then sketching the strong green stem which is designed using various shades of embroidery threads.

When the free-hand embroidery work is done I can easily pull the unknotted sketching thread out of the piece without any damage to the fabric.
