20 Dec Embroidery As Storytelling
In this workshop we will start by learning basic embroidery stitches. We will spend some time practicing each stitch playing with how to create texture and movement and figuring out what stitches you feel most comfortable with.
Through guided meditation and a little solo journaling/sketching we will begin connecting with how to use embroidery as a way to share story.
I have been teaching practical embroidery skills workshops for a long time and then came up with this class a few years ago after I started a ‘stitch diary’ on a jumpsuit that I take on all of my travels. I embroider beautiful little reminders of meaningful moments and places. It has been such an incredible way to keep a diary and encapsulate my stories.
I will have plenty of fabric, but please feel welcome to bring a special piece of clothing or your own fabric to work on. All other materials will be provided for you to keep and take home to continue your journey with this wonderful, meditative craft.
Embroidery As Storytelling will be shared by Arwyn Moonrise.
