Upcycling with Embroidery

Note: This class takes place on two consecutive Wednesdays, Oct. 17th & 24th.

Embroidery is a fun and colorful way to mend or upcycle clothing. From jeans or a denim jacket to a silk shirt, any piece of clothing or fabric can be embellished with embroidery. Using the design or image of your choosing in this two session workshop, you’ll learn the stitches you need to complete your project and how to transfer an image to fabric. Then you’ll go home with an upcycled creation!

Impact: Clothing that is outdated or in need of mending gets a fresh start, and stays out of the landfill. 

Participant and Materials Requirements: Please bring a design or sketch to embroider, an embroidery hoop, embroidery thread, article of clothing or fabric to be mended/embellished, a needle, and needle threader if needed.
