Laura Wennstrom

Welcome back to Textile Center for this evening workshop, where you will utilize everyday textiles, treasures, and sentimental objects from your home or stash in an innovative, experimental approach to collage and assemblage! Working with found materials to build design skills in composition and color, employ stitching techniques – such as basic embroidery and hand sewing – to create a finished sampler/artwork. Creative possibilities for this class are open-ended, so come ready to step out of your comfort zone and explore fiber art in a new way! This class will focus on hand stitching. However, if you have sewing machine skills and wish to use a sewing machine, please bring a working sewing machine with you to 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.
