Learn the basics of embroidery in this workshop for artists of all levels.
Needlework is a flexible medium that can accommodate a variety of personal image-making and drawing styles. For this workshop we’ll be starting with either our own drawings or found images, then transferring the drawings onto fabric, and learning some basic embroidery stitches. Feel free to bring drawings, ideas, and images, but if you’re not sure of what you might like to draw/stitch, we’ll have some magazines to flip through for inspiration. We’ll also talk about techniques for hanging and displaying finished pieces.
