Playful Freeform Embroidery
About Playful Freeform Embroidery
Learn all the basic stitches you need, and discover freeform embroidery with thread and yarn. Be inspired by traditional styles and the world around you. Sample different techniques and materials, and learn tips for planning and transferring designs. Come ready to experiment, have fun, and begin to develop your own personal style. Leave with plenty of ideas to help you add unique stitching to your next project.
This class is presented in collaboration with the John C. Campbell Folk School & is limited to 10 students. There will be an optional Orientation and Closing Ceremony hosted from the Folk School campus that students can attend online.
Class Materials Needed
The materials for this class are flexible, and I hope that you can mostly use things you already have, or that are easy to find. You will need some yarn and/or embroidery floss, fabric to stitch on, hand sewing needles, and a few other notions. I will share specific suggestions with everyone who registers for the class.
All levels welcome
