This is pattern play with embroidery
In this class, we will explore bold stitching patterns, transferring techniques, and hand stitching. All of these skills allow us to customize and embellish our own garments. This is a powerful tool as the most sustainable garment is the one you already own.
Together we will revamp pieces of our wardrobe with hand embroidery in beautiful patterns for a refresh as well as a sweet reminder of our time together at Squam.
Class will begin by picking out patterns from several provided samples or creating your own*. Then, we will explore a variety of techniques that allow us to apply imagery to fabric, including experiments with several hand stitches such as sashiko.
Throughout the class, Jessica will share her deep knowledge of tips and tricks that make working with three-dimensional garments (which can be tricky to draw and stitch on) fun and successful.
In addition, Jessica will recommend the tools and materials, hand embroidery stitches and finishing techniques that help you to create a flawless finish inside the garment.
(*Advanced students will have the opportunity to draw their own patterns directly onto their garment).
