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.
