What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life. Built on top of our 20,000 monthly attendees at CreativeMornings talks, FieldTrips are community-organized events built on the spirit of generosity that has powered CreativeMornings events for the past 10 years.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.

About this FieldTrip
Traditional methods meets contemporary design. Learn traditional hand embroidery with SFSNAD and craft your own custom napkin, or tea towel on vintage textiles!
During this workshop you will experiment with traditional stitches and fundamental techniques such as whipped back stitch, chain stitch, and french knots. Learn about water soluble markers and how they are used to transfer designs onto fabric. Then try out embroidery to create your own future piece. All materials like thread, fabric, hoops, needles will be supplied for this workshop.
