Workshop: Embroidery for Adults and Children
October 29, 2022 10:15am - 12:00pm
Immerse yourself in the ancient art of embroidery, practice basic stitches, and make a project inspired by traditional Mexican dress embellishments.
Join us for an embroidery workshop led by Creative Action and learn to embroider in the traditional Mexican style that has been used for generations to embellish beautiful garments and works of textile arts. This special workshop will have one class for adults and one class for children so they can each create something beautiful at their own ability level. After the workshop visit Hilos de Tradición to see Mexican embroidery styles and be inspired to use the skills you've learned on your next project.
We recommend children be at least 7 years old to attend the children's class. Children ages 14 and up may join the adult class. Space is limited!
