Join Kate Wyatt Fine Art to learn some basic embroidery skills with this exclusive design collaboration using hand-dyed fabric and a ginkgo leaf design. Customize your experience by choosing your fabric and thread combination (with artist guidance if you so choose!). Thread choices will include high-end thread types to give you a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Choose from DMC Light Effects, Etoile, and Color Variations color schemes to customize your piece. This workshop is a great way to build confidence to begin a new hobby and enjoy great company.

Expect to learn some basic stitch types (we mainly use backstitch for this project) to get started on your hoop. You won't finish the hoop during the class, but you'll leave with the confidence and ability to finish it at home. Class will conclude with an example of how to finish the hoop when you're done later at home for reference. Class includes all materials, come as you are!

Class will include light bites by a local restaurant (BYOB encouraged!).

Participants also receive a specialized thank-you gift as a part of the experience.

The event is part of Downtown Evanston's Hygge Fest, a series of workshops, classes and outdoor experiences to help you get cozy and feel comfort and joy during the winter months. View more at downtownevanston.org/hyggefest.
