In this class, students will first make a paper template. Then they will embroider on wool with floss over wool felt applique. Instructor Natalie Norman will guide students as they try the most common stitches and slightly more unusual stitches (for those who wish to expand further).
The goal is to use the basic techniques of embroidery like stem, feather, and blanket stitches, adding French knots and extra little decoration to develop skills with an emphasis on designing as well. These tasks are designed so that they can be easily adapted to each student’s level.
This project will produce a front piece for a smaller pillow or a stylish bag to be completed later.
Your instructor will provide the following materials:
- wool fabric for backing
- wool felt
- embroidery floss
Students are asked to bring:
- sewing shears
- magnificationif needed
- We highly recommend you bring a lunch as this class does go over the lunch hour. If you need to buy lunch, you can do so at these local businesses.
No experience needed.
Students ages 18 and older are welcome to attend this class.
