Stitching On Paper

November 1, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In this online class, students will learn to draw in thread on paper.

Join fiber artist Johanna Marshall to learn to letter and draw in thread on paper. We’ll practice three stitches that you can use to embellish art paper with texture and pattern. Supplies needed include: heavy paper, such as watercolor paper; image(s) to work from, such as a photograph, magazine, or drawing; embroidery thread or floss of your choice; thin, sharp sewing needle with an eye large enough for thread; and sharp scissors This online class requires students to have a device to join the class with reliable internet access.

$15 Community / $30 Cost of Workshop / $45 Sponsor

In an effort to keep workshops accessible to as many as possible, while compensating our instructors fairly and covering Soapbox costs, we’re pleased to offer a sliding scale. Our “Cost of Workshop” rate is the real cost of our workshop, and we need most people to register at this rate to run the workshop. For those who are able, please consider selecting the “Sponsor” rate to allow someone who cannot afford the real cost to participate. If you are someone experiencing hardship, please register at the “Community” rate. In evaluating where you fall on the scale, we ask you to consider the difference between sacrifice (making trade-offs in my discretionary spending) vs. hardship (paying full cost for this workshop prevents me from meeting basic needs).
