Pet Portrait Embroidery
Arts & DIY
Grab a pal and head over to the Argaman&Defiance for an afternoon filled with sips and getting crafting.
In this workshop you will learn how to stitch up a portrait of your pet. You send me several photos of your dog/cat/bird/reptile and I will trace the outline to the fabric to embroider. (Bright, high-resolution photos please).
Each participant will make and take one embroidered pet portrait. All supplies will be provided.
All ages welcome

Argaman&Defiance creates 100% silk scarves naturally dyed by hand in our studio located in St. Charles, Mo. We use natural dye extracts responsibly collected from tree bark, roots, and leaves. We then hand paint or print a unique design on each piece.
From stitch to surface design, Argaman&Defiance is creating every piece by hand.
