What you'll learn in this embroidery class:

In this class, students will expand upon their knowledge of traditional embroidery stitches and techniques and learn to “paint with thread”! You will create original artwork, learn various image transferring techniques, and delve into new methods for manipulating thread to create shading and texture in your designs while developing your own stitching style.

Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime! All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. 

This One Day Class does not come with Open Studio time.

Please Note: Wear clothing that can get messy!

Painting with Thread (One Day Class)
Reviewed by Alma O. on 2/3/2019
Olivia was an excellent teacher. Patient, energetic, kind and gentle. She really knows her embroidery. We were given a bag, hoop, thread and information to take home and plenty of time was given to work on our projects in class. The room itself was small but well lit and comfortable with a sink and bathroom.
