PARIS WORKSHOP: Sunday, December 3rd, 10h - 14h

Abandon your embroidery expectations and embrace freestyle stitching and experimentation during a hands-on Contemporary Embroidery workshop hosted by Artesane in Paris, France. (24 rue Mayet 75006 Paris)

In this 4-hour session (taught in English) I will help you prep your hoop and fabric, transfer a design from paper to cloth, and introduce you to some of my favourite stitches, while encouraging you experiment with mark-making and non-traditional embroidery techniques. A selection of workshop-exclusive botanical designs will be provided for you to get started, but there are no rules here, just you + your creativity!

My contemporary approach to embroidery pulls this craft out of the past and into the present with modern designs and a relaxed attitude. I emphasize 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 and grants you permission to experiment with thread, play with color, embrace imperfections and leave full of inspiration and a new piece of wall art.

Included Materials:

5 inch wooden embroidery hoop

Fabric *

Needle

Thread Scissors

Pencil

2 botanical patterns

DMC embroidery floss **

*Participants are welcome to bring their own piece of special fabric if they would prefer, must be at least 5 x 5 inches and shouldn’t be too thick, dark, or stretchy.
