ABOUT THIS EVENT
Arts & DIY
"Embroidery traditionally [has been] regarded as women’s work and the teaching of embroidery as a means of preparing young women for domesticity." Well, we say, fuck that shit. Embroidery is art; embroider because it's fun; embroider because you want to embroider.
Join Madeline, our resident subversive embroiderer, to build on your embroidery knowledge and make some cute ass flowers. First, we'll practice our new stitches, and then you'll embroider your own piece, with one-on-one assistance from Madeline as needed. We’ll have flowers available if you want to try to copy from real life or you’ll learn how to draw your own pattern directly onto the fabric if you have something in mind.
In this workshop, you will:
- choose your hoop size
- choose your fabric and embroidery thread
- learn these stitches: bullion knot, woven wheel, stem stitch, and fishbone stitch
- practice on scrap fabric
- create your own pattern
- set up your hoop to create your own take-home art
- receive classroom and one-on-one instruction as needed
- leave with your finished art, or at least a started embroidery piece and the skills and tools you need to finish!
All materials provided (and snacks, of course!). Previous class experience suggested but not required - we will not be covering steps from 101 so you’ll need to be able to sew straight stitch, back stitch, lazy daisy, and French knots.
