In this introductory workshop, students will learn how to transfer an image onto fabric (we use Sublime Stitching transfers!) to do basic hand embroidery stitches. They will also get a chance to explore the variations of simple stitches which can be used to embellish the desired image or create a simple piece of embroidered art. The 3 hour workshop will focus on giving students with confidence to do hand embroidery and use it in creative, unexpected ways!
