June 10, 2018 – June 16, 2018
For students that have never touched a needle and thread, or for more experienced embroiderers looking for ways to expand their work, this workshop offers the time and space to get started. Using hand-stitched lines to draw on fabric, you will explore how the process of stitching and the materials chosen gives meaning to your work. Participants are introduced to basic embroidery stitches and discover different styles of embroidery and their histories. You will also experiment with a variety of materials to create your own style of stitched drawings. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
