In this class, you will learn basic embroidery techniques for painting on 2D Felt Paintings. If you attended the Painting with Felt Class, you can bring your Felt Painting to embroider, but otherwise, we will have simple felt paintings for you to work on. You will learn how to plan your piece, color and thread choices, and 10 embroidery stitches you can use to embellish felt paintings! Supplies are included, but we will have additional thread to purchase or you can bring your own needle and floss if you want complete control over color or material. We suggest Sassy Jack's Stitchery for your local thread needs!
About the teacher:
Yoko is a felter, spinner, knitter, gardener and mother to many rabbits and ducks, including 8 Angoras who share their wool for lots of fiber fun. She has been an artist her entire life and rarely follows a given pattern, preferring to find a medium and make it her own. Working at Echoview with all the roving around her, she took up felt work and hasn't looked back. She's constantly on the lookout for new fibers, techniques and creative friends - whether chatting at craft night or cruising the isles of local craft events. She has taught a variety of art mediums to makers from babies to hospice patients over the years and enjoys bringing out the creative side in everyone!
