Hand Embroidery + Fiber Art - Hosted by Rebecca Butler

An Exploration in Hand Embroidery & Fiber Art: Stitches, Threads, Fabrics, Material and the Alabama Chanin Method

This workshop will be a great opportunity for beginners and advanced students alike. The main focus will be on learning key stitches for any hand-sewer, either following a pattern chosen or created by the students. What makes this class exciting is that it will also provide instruction, opportunities and materials to create and tweak your piece with nontraditional materials—like sewing with bamboo or velvet thread, filament silk, or adding contrasting fabric, from denim or chiffon.

The class will include all materials needed for creating an embroidery piece from start to finish and each student will be able to take home their projects and materials to further work on their piece.
