INSTRUCTOR: Erin Frisch
Gather inspiration from everyday life and translate it into a finished piece of contemporary embroidery. Gain an overview of embroidery techniques including: selecting materials, pattern design, preparing your hoop, and “painting” with thread using the satin stitch. 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.
In this virtual workshop, students will follow an embroidery pattern or design their own. Creativity in color selection, stitching, and following your instinct is highly encouraged with guidance from the instructor. After this workshop, you will be able to transform moments from your everyday life into original embroidery. Embroidery takes time and shouldn’t be rushed. Time outside of class may be needed to finish your work. Login details will be sent the day before your class.
