Contemporary Embroidery with Sarah K. Benning

3:00 PM15:00

Contemporary Embroidery with Sarah K. Benning

Abandon your embroidery expectations and embrace freestyle stitching and experimentation during this hands-on Contemporary Embroidery workshop with fiber artist Sarah K. Benning.

In this 2-hour session Sarah will help you prep your hoop and fabric, transfer a design from paper to cloth, and introduce you to some of her 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!

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.

Thursday, October 5th. $75

There are two classes of 12 people each. The first class will run from 3-5pm and the second from 6-8pm. Please keep that in mind when signing up and choose the time slot you would like.
