Interested in learning hand embroidery but overwhelmed by all the tutorials you find online? Have a good start on some basic stitches but want to explore the medium with some guidance? This one-day course will allow you to explore different materials, styles, and techniques in a supportive and creative environment. Together we will use a basic pattern to get comfortable with freeform embroidery. Materials will be provided, and participants will be able to bring home materials to finish projects at home if they are not completed in class.
