Building an Embroidery Sketchbook: Foundational Stitches • May 19; SOLD OUT!

, ,

Thursday, May 19, 6 – 9 pm

Kelsey McGregor

Get started in this introductory level embroidery basics class by learning four foundational embroidery stitches—fly, seed, detached chain, and couching—and then build on these with variations related to each technique—feather, running, back, brick, square chain, zig zag, long-tailed, and bokhara couching. Learn how to transfer your own design ideas to fabric and how to finish pieces—beyond hanging them mounted in the hoop. With new skills at hand and three samplers started, focus will be on unlearning the need to make things “perfect” and instead explore what works to set your inner artist free! Join us in this beginning-level class to discover, explore, and experiment with this beautiful art form. No experience necessary. Materials fee is $25, payable to the instructor at the time of class.

This is an in-person class, which requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Click here to submit your proof of vaccination. Proof of vaccination must be received 3 days (72 hours) before class, or your registration is subject to cancellation with a full refund of your payment.

Kelsey McGregor is a long-time self-taught embroidery enthusiast—and an improv instructor with Huge Theater in Minneapolis. Along with infusing her students with the basics of embroidery, her goal is to generate bucketloads of enthusiasm so they may leave each class full of ideas for where to take this traditional and often utilitarian art form. McGregor has been a freelance reporter and producer for radio and media, including MPR, This American Life and The New York Times, and brings her communication talents into the creative classroom to create a space where participants leave with more ideas than they have time to complete!
