Wear Your Art! Freestyle Embroidery Workshop with Harper Leich

July 27, 2024 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join local mixed media artist Harper Leich at ArtPlay for this fun afternoon learning to transform old clothes into something fun & inspiring!

Freestyle embroidery doesn’t require a lot of technical skill or fancy stitches. Together we will learn some basic stitches (all you need to make amazing designs!), sketch out our designs, and begin our projects- embroidering images on our clothing! All you need to bring is an article of clothing that isn’t stretchy and that allows you to access the front and the back of the fabric easily. Think: linen shirt, jean jacket, denim shirt, etc. There should be no stretch to the material. If you want to make a patch, bring a piece of fabric that is about a foot square in size which allows space to work with a hoop.

Absolute beginners and those with some experience are welcome. It helps to have a vague idea of what you might like to stitch, but I’ll have some reference books with ideas and we’ll work together to come up with something awesome. You’re also welcome to bring reference images and sketches you’d like to try!

You’ll leave class with an embroidery hoop, embroidery floss to finish your project, a needle, and likely some homework as embroidery is a slow art. You will likely need to keep working on your project at home.
