Workshop: Embroidery on Paper with Ann Bausman

Ann Bausman returns to the SCC with a workshop on paper stitching!

Embellish old black and white and colored photographs, postcards, and prints with embroidery to create one-of-a-kind cards, collages, and keepsakes. We’ll look at the work of artists who use this technique, review basic embroidery stitches, and discuss working with patterns and transferring images.

No experience necessary and beginners are welcome.

The instructor will provide needles, an assortment of embroidery thread, a foam backing for piercing the paper, pencils, a variety of papers, photos, postcards, washi tape, as well as paper punches.

*Please bring a pair of scissors suitable for cutting paper, scotch tape, and a bag for transporting items*

Participants may wish to bring personal items that they can embroider, such as postcards and photographs (black and white is best).

Saturday, April 29, 2023 | 10-1 | $40 advanced registration required | register here
