Introduction to Hand Embroidery
Sunday November 5th 2017 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
In Saskatoon at Void Gallery
Join me for an introduction to hand embroidery workshop in Saskatoon at Void Gallery!
Freestyle surface hand embroidery is a technique where needle and thread are used to create an image on fabric. A variety of stitches are employed, forming different textures and effects within a design. Hand embroidery has been practiced for centuries and continues to be a popular art practice in modern times, with many artists using historical techniques to create fibre art that is relevant today.
During this one-day workshop, participants will be introduced to the materials and techniques used for hand embroidery. They will have the opportunity to learn different groups of stitches, transfer a drawing or pattern onto fabric to be stitched, and create a freehand embroidery piece. The class will also discuss different ways to display embroidery, including securing a finished piece in an embroidery hoop.
Cost: $65 + GST and service fees (includes materials)
