Working with natural materials of linen, silk, cotton, and wool, we will embroider forms inspired by nature and the patterns found within. A variety of stitches and combinations will be taught. Interspersed throughout the week will be opportunities to practice ribbon folding, making cord with the lucet, plant dyeing, and finishing techniques. Each day will include some quiet meditative stitching as well. Exercises in eurythmy will balance our stitching time. This course is suitable for all levels of stitchers and handwork teachers.
