Instructor: The School of Making Team

Our Embroidery Workshop includes discussion of the physics of sewing, embroidery stitches, and an overview of garment construction and other sewing techniques. The kit selections will focus on variegated striped kits that focus on exploring various embroidery techniques. Participants will learn to use the die-cut grids in The Geometry of Hand-Sewing to practice and develop your embroideries. These reusable cards can be stitched through for practicing or used as stencils for transferring grids to fabric.

This workshop is suited to beginners and experienced sewers alike. Guests will work with The School of Making team to create a hand-sewn project.
