Beginning Contemporary Embroidery Workshop - Oct. 20
Join Sol Y Mano at Indigo & Violet Studio for a contemporary embroidery workshop!
In this beginning embroidery class, you will learn everything you need to complete your first embroidery project! We will cover four different stitches and step-by-step instructions for hand-embroidery, including how to transfer an image, prep your hoop and different finishing techniques. Using a provided pattern design, you’ll select your own thread colors and favorite stitches to create a unique piece! Modifications to the pattern design are encouraged for more advanced or adventurous students. You will leave class with a stitch sampler, an in-progress embroidery piece to finish at home and a reference guide plus tools and materials. You’ll have the knowledge to finish your project and dive into making your own embroidery work — whether it’s another piece of wall art or embellishing your favorite denim jacket!
