Intro to Embroidery: Making a Sampler (Prospect Heights)
Taught by Rhiannon Platt
Rhiannon Platt is at least third generation fiber artist. Raised by seamstresses, crocheters, and fiber artists of all kinds, she picked up her first pair of needles over a decade ago. Since her first scarf, Rhiannon has gone on to fabricate for Lion Brand Yarn, Nathan Vincent, Olek, Jeila Gueramian, Londonkaye, and Levi’s. In between commissions, she finds time to write patterns and make endless sweaters.
Embroidery has a variety of applications, from customizing clothes to creating your own artwork. This class will take you through eight different stitches. With knots, edging, and basics, you will leave with a finished sampler of all you learned in class as well as the tools to continue further.
All materials provided; no experience necessary.
We also offer an intermediate class focusing on textures.
