Embroidery Workshop: Intro to Geometric Patterns - POST - Detroit

Hosted by POST + Amber BarkerFriday, May 29th from 6pm to 9pm$55, includes all materialsThis workshop is a fun and easy introduction to traditional embroidery, with a modern geometric aesthetic. During the 3 hour make + take workshop, students will use, almost exclusively, a back stitching technique. This is a great way to highlight how a simple stitch can be used in a multitude of ways to create beautiful patterns while working in a grid. All floss, embroidery hoops, fabric, and tools will be provided. Everyone will take home their own creation and the know-how to create embroidered patterns and projects in the future. About the instructor:Amber Barker is a professional crafter, procrastinator and mess maker. She graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2014, specializing in Ceramics. Although her practice is now predominantly fibre based, she finds similar concepts in both mediums. She has a deep love for kitschy ceramic cats, antique cross stitch samplers and international road trips.
