Introduction to Embroidery: Geometric Patterns with Amber Barker on Saturday September 8


Hosted by POST + Amber Barker

Saturday September 8th from 10am to 2pm

This workshop will be a fun and easy introduction to traditional embroidery, with a modern geometric aesthetic.

During the 4 hour make & take workshop students will use, almost exclusively, a back stitching technique. This is a great way to highlight how a simple stitch can be used in a multitude of ways to create beautiful patterns while working in a grid. All floss, embroidery hoops, fabric, and tools will be provided.

Everyone will take home their own creation and the know-how to create embroidered patterns and projects in the future.

  • No experience necessary.

  • This class is open to ages 14+

  • All tools and fabric will be provided.

  • Refreshments will be served.
