Join Ahmri Vandeborne from Otherwise Studios for a beginners’ textile workshop! Participants will learn how to take their idea or source image from paper onto fabric in this introductory embroidery workshop. They will gain the knowledge of 8 hand-embroidery stitches that can be used to embellish their desired image on a 4” embroidery hoop.

Since embroidery is a slow and mindful practice, this workshop is designed to teach the basic skills and encourage participants to finish their design at home. All materials supplied. No experience necessary.
