Design and hand stitch a small piece featuring favorite animal images from Sue’s book Folktails. This small study workshop is presented as a creative design class, allowing each student’s piece to be unique. Instruction begins with layering techniques, using simple stitches and fabrics for creating a textured background. Sue will guide you through the design process, drawing inspiration from the charming and whimsical animal images. Last, but not least, embellish your piece layering with hand dyed wool, silk velvet, silk, linen and cotton fabrics.
