Hosted by POST + Amber Barker
Thursday, January 30th from 6pm to 9pm
During this 3 hour make & take workshop Amber will teach various embroidery stitches and techniques. Using patterned cotton fabrics, the focus of the class will be on outlined imagery.
Students will be working with their own chosen images. Simple, graphic line work will be best - think shapes, flowers, landscapes, architecture - it’s up to you! Amber will help determine the best way to realize your design. Bring a few photos/drawings to select from. We’ll also have magazines available here for use and inspiration.
Everyone will take home their own unique piece and the know-how to create embroidered projects in the future.
