If you love to draw and paint but are ready for a new medium, join us for this short adventure into fiber arts! Learn how to stitch a range of embroidery stitches for line drawing or thread painting, and design a personal work of art using fabric, needle, and thread. The first hour of the class will be spent on demonstrations by the instructor and the second hour students will have a chance to work independently and share their work in progress with the instructor and the class.
