Contemporary Embroidery w Sarah K Benning

Contemporary Embroidery w Sarah K Benning

Saturday, October 7th 10a - 2p // 3p - 7p

Abandon your embroidery expectations and embrace freestyle stitching and experimentation during a hands-on Contemporary Embroidery workshop with fiber artist Sarah K. Benning.

In this 4-hour session, Sarah will help you prep your hoop and fabric, transfer a design from paper to cloth, and introduce you to some of her favorite stitches, while encouraging you experiment with mark-making and non-traditional embroidery techniques. A selection of workshop-exclusive botanical designs will be provided for you to get started, but there are no rules here, just you + your creativity!

Sarah’s contemporary approach to embroidery pulls this craft out of the past and into the present with modern designs and a relaxed attitude. Her emphasis is on drawing, composition, and color choice over rigid structures and traditional stitches. This workshop celebrates intuitive decision making and a departure from the conventions of hand-embroidery, grants you permission to experiment with thread, play with color, embrace imperfections and leave full of inspiration and a new piece of wall art.

Class fee includes the following:

  • 4 hours of instruction

  • All materials - including a 5" embroidery hoop, fabric, embroidery floss, and 2 botanical embroidery patterns

  • Use of our measuring and cutting tools
