In this 4-week workshop, students will be guided through several folk embroidery styles on the way to creating a hand-embroidered, tunic-style dress or top. Beginning with a study of embroidered samples and images from Mexico, Hungary, and other cultures, students will design and embroider their own tunics, incorporating their own stories into their pieces. After learning basic stitches, students will design the yoke of their tunics, and learn how to combine stitches to embroider the patterns and motifs of their choosing. Each student will finish the class with uniquely designed, hand-embroidered pattern pieces that they can assemble into a dress or tunic top at home.
