ABOUT THIS EVENT
"Embroidery traditionally has been regarded as women’s work and the teaching of embroidery as a means of preparing young women for domesticity." Well, we say, fuck that shit. Embroider as art; embroider because it's fun; embroider because you want to embroider.
Join Madeline, our resident subversive embroiderer, to learn embroidery basics. First, we'll practice stitching, and then you'll embroider your own piece, with one-on-one assistance from Madeline as needed.
In this workshop, you will:
- learn these stitches: back stitch, straight stitch, lazy daisy, and french knot
- practice on scrap fabric
- set up your hoop to create your own take-home art
- receive one-on-one virtual instruction as needed
- enjoy your finished art, or at least a started embroidery piece and the skills and tools you need to finish!
Just like our in-studio workshops, this will be a small group, and we'll meet virtually using simple video conference tech. Everyone can do it, even if you're not high tech! With everyone on camera, we'll all be together to share the art and gratitude.
Materials will be delivered to your doorstep locally or shipped to you if you're outside of Austin.
