Sarah’s contemporary approach to embroidery pulls this craft out of the past and into the present with modern designs and a relaxed attitude. Her emphasis is on drawing, composition, and color choice over rigid structures and traditional stitches. This workshop celebrates intuitive decision making and a departure from the conventions of hand-embroidery, grants you permission to experiment with thread, play with color, embrace imperfections and leave full of inspiration and a new piece of wall art.
