Ages 18 and older
You have learned a number of embroidery stitches: Now What?!!
This needle book course is designed for students who have taken the Beginning Embroidery and Continuing Embroidery classes. We will put all those stitches into action in a single design that uses much of what you have learned. The needle book (or a small book of felt pages where one can store needles) will be made of linen twill, with dimensions of 10" x 6". This exercise will further explore the variety of uses for each stitch and give you valuable experience in interpreting a design in many different ways. Just to make it even more interesting, the instructor will also teach you a few new stitches!
Students should bring $16 to the first day of class for a kit of embroidery materials which includes linen twill with the design drawn on, 4 shaded skeins of Appleton's crewel wool, #22 Chenille needles, and printed instructions. (Contact instructor for substitutions.) Please purchase your kits from the instructor at the start of the first class.
Students will also need to bring the following to class: a small pair of scissors (for clipping threads) and a 5" or 6" screw-type embroidery hoop (the instructor will have some good quality hoops available for purchase, if the student wishes, on the first day of class)
This 2-session intermediate level course is for ages 18 and up
Classes take place at Arbutus Folk School, 610 4th Ave E, Olympia.
