CLASS DATE: Saturday, October 8, 2-5 pm
LOCAL REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 3 days before scheduled workshop
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 14 days before scheduled workshop
INSTRUCTOR: Erin Frisch
High reaching ridges of saguaro cacti. Hot sun warming expanses of sand. Prickly pear dotted with crimson blooms.
Translate images of the desert into an original work of embroidery. In this workshop, students will embroider their own desert landscapes, choosing between two offered embroidery patterns. Students will have the option to draw their own design (please draft a sketch before class). This workshop is beginner-friendly, but all levels are welcome.
Class will include an overview of embroidery techniques including: selecting materials, pattern making, preparing your hoop, and “painting” with thread using the satin stitch. Creativity in color selection, stitching, and following your instinct is highly encouraged with guidance from the instructor. Embroidery takes time and shouldn’t be rushed. Time outside of class may be needed to finish your work.
