Laura Taylor Needlepoint Weekend

June 20-24, 2014

Laura Taylor has a background in Graphic Design and has been teaching needlepoint for 14 years at Aristeia in Los Angeles. Her design background finds its way into every canvas she works on – bringing her love of color, texture and balance to enhance her approach to the piece. She is a passionate teacher who collaborates with each student to bring out their personal best and make the most of their canvas. She is especially fond of open stitches and overdyed threads that allow the artist’s vision to shine through.
