Introduction to Counted Stitch Embroidery
December 9, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join instructor Bozena Hrycyna of Kosa Kolektiv & Folk Camp Canada in an afternoon immersion into the world of hand embroidery, learning the basics of counted embroidery stitches.
This workshop is designed for beginners and will focus on learning best practices and gaining general familiarity with various materials and techniques used in embroidery. We will focus on cross stitch, back stitch and running stitch, working on linen and/or cotton aida cloth following a geometric pattern to begin. Your pieces can form a sampler/bookmark, or patch, or the basis of a little pouch, pillow or book cover (or be incorporated into a larger piece at a later time), depending on how far we get.
Dive into this beautiful craft and begin your journey into this rich and ancient world of handwork and adornment.
