Stories with needle and thread. Inspired by the works of Amazwi Abesifazani, Bayeaux Tapestry, and Anna Torma — in this class we will play with how to use stitching to tell a story.
Students will learn to use simple hand embroidery stitches to make words and pictures that tell a narrative. Embellishing with story line and materials is encouraged!
4 sessions via Zoom
Tuesdays: 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
