There currently are no classes scheduled for this course.
This class is a two for one deal! Learn the art of embroidery with Emily Moorhead. Practice basic and traditional stitches on a swatch a fabric and learn the basics of embroidery.
Then take your learning to the next level by creating a work of textile art. Sketch out ideas and get insight on your composition and design. Use the basic stitches you have learned to create a mixed media work of art!
This class is great for those totally new to art or crafters/artists looking to push their work to a new level. All materials are included.

I thought this class was a good introduction to embroidery. We had 4 students and it was a small enough group that I got individual instruction and all my questions answered. Thanks to One Strange Bird for hosting! I'd recommend this class to anyone looking to Dabble in embroidery. :o)

Teacher was awesome and it was really clear she had been embroidering for years, instead of walking away with a finished product I asked her to help me learn some more complicated stitches and it showed that she was really knowledgeable. She even consulted on where to get the best embroidery books and resources to continue my learning. LOVE one strange bird. Always the best experience!!!

The teacher did not seem to know how to teach the stitches that she knew of. While she seemed educated, getting her knowledge past herself and to us was a challenge. It seemed overly expensive for the fact that you had to buy any further materials and did not get to keep anything but the piece of unbleached burlap they gave you. It also was in a bit of a sketchy area.

I had fun, but the class itself did not feel very organized or structured. Overall, the classes hosted by the One Strange Bird venue feel a bit amateur. Perhaps I'm just expecting a deeper level of instruction, explanation, and thoroughness.
