This will be a slow and relaxing time of hand stitching. I will bring fabric that I have dyed using natural materials. We will cut out and sew shapes that tell a story or symbolize something meaningful. We will draw our design on paper before transferring the design to our fabric. I will cover more basic methods as well as more detail-oriented techniques. Each participant will leave with a flag, banner, or piece of wall art. We will discuss the tradition of appliqué, what it has been used for in different cultures throughout history, as well as artists who use it today.
