4 Week | Fibers: Intro to Embroidery

Class Description:

In this class, students will be introduced to the art of embroidery, the many different stitches one can use to be creative with embroidery and will be inspired by the fiber works in the museum collection. Once students gain confidence with embroidery, they will be encouraged to create their own works.

“I view embroidery as simply drawing with thread. This has inspired my own studio practice and I hope it will inspire my students!” - Charis

What to Expect:

During class time, students will mostly be creating. The class will briefly view art works in the museum collection for inspiration, as well as the work of fiber artists. Focus will be placed on practicing stitches and then incorporating them into individual creative projects. No experience necessary.


Class 1: Introduction to the art of embroidery via images and the museum collection, and practice on a few beginning stitches.

Class 2: We will learn a few more embroidery stitches and practice them.

Class 3: Students will keep practicing stitches and begin thinking about their own individual projects.

Class 4: Individual project worktime and assistance.

Class Make-up Day Policy:

If a class or workshop needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather or teacher illness, a “make-up” day will be scheduled on a FRIDAY or SATURDAY as the educator’s schedule allows.


Students will purchase their own materials and should expect to spend $20-50. A materials list will be emailed to students prior to the class start date.
