Needle & Thread: Designing with Embroidery- Family & Community Workshop (Online)
Family & Community Art Workshop
Join us for a three-session hands on virtual workshop! This inter-generational workshop is open to community members and families of all ages.* Participants will learn some basic embroidery stitches, how to use them to create imagery, and finally, how to use these stitches to mend their clothing into stylish new garments. Embroidery is a technique of using sewn lines in fabric to make a design, pattern, or image in thread, and can also be used to embellish or repair fabric or clothing. It is a meditative art form that can be practiced by all ages.
