Flights Of Floral Fancy

July 26, 2020 – August 1, 2020

Katherine Diuguid

This workshop introduces students to the iconic periods throughout history when floral motifs abound in embroidery and are interpreted in styles reflecting each period and culture. During class you will take advantage of the natural surroundings of Arrowmont for your creations. Participants will design and stitch their own floral-inspired samples and experiment with surface design techniques including eco-printing and various methods of direct application to complement the stitched details. Open to all skill levels.
