In this workshop, we will explore various traditional (and non-traditional!) embroidery techniques and ways to translate them into the language of jewelry making. Beginning with the fabrics we can use, and ways to embellish them before we begin, we will move through the basics of hand embroidery, incorporating additions such as beads, pierced shapes, and wirework. We will discuss ways to stabilize our pieces, in order to be able to wear them.



All of our online workshops are recorded and, with purchase of the seat in the class, you have access to the recording(s) between workshop sessions as well as for 45 days after the workshop ends.
