INTRO TO EMBROIDERY FOR TWEENS + TEENS
Let's bring back to the old school traditions but with a contemporary edge. Our studio makers will learn embroidery basics in this super trendy workshop. I will introduce the kids to embroidery floss and a simple go to stitch that is fail proof with every design. Each participant will take home their own hoop to continue this project as they wish.
How do I know this skillset you ask?! I was lucky enough to be taught by Cree Elders in the Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute in 2014. For seventy hours (yes, seventy hours) I worked alongside these incredible women as I learned a dear cultural tradition and made my very own embroidered moose hide mittens. I'll even bring in my mitts to show the group.
studio time: TBD
bring: water bottle & snack
