SATURDAY, OCT 7, 2023  |  1:30 pm-3:30 pm

AGES 12+  |  MAX 20

$30 plus hst

*please note, a $10 kit fee is payable in cash to the instructor at the start of class.

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.

**Kit fee covers all materials including embroidery hoop, embroidery needle, fabric, thread, and instructional guide.
