Lines Workshop
Some general information


Line is fundamental to both drawing and stitching. A line could be seen as an elongated mark which can be continuous or suggested by closely spaced elements such as dots or dashes. Lines may be straight, curved, broken, bold, faint, spikey, jagged and more. They can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. Lines can be drawn, printed, painted, or scratched and you can also create them by folding, scoring, tearing or cutting through paper.

'When a dot begins to move, it becomes a line, this requires time. Likewise, when a moving line produces a plane, and when moving planes produce spaces. Does a pictorial work come into being in one stroke? No, it is constructed bit by bit, just like a house.' Paul Klee 'Creative Credo' 1920
