Learn the basics of hand embroidery from Jenny Hart in a class that focuses on textural effects and free-form techniques.
Hart will give a brief talk on her work, lead students through the basics of hand embroidery, review tools, share techniques for transferring original designs to fabric and “doodling” in embroidery. Students will leave with a new understanding of hand embroidery and the ability to experiment with it in their own work. This workshop is presented in collaboration with 1450 Ocean, an adult recreation center overlooking the ocean and run by the city of Santa Monica.
