Art Embroidery


Taking the traditional sampler as a point of departure, learn several classic and artistic hand embroidery stitches. Get inspired to draw and write with thread, embellish and reuse garments, and create original works of art. Add new technical skills to samplers each week, explore text and shading, and consider how the surface of a textile may be a location for personal expression.
