Event description

Description

Learn how to make the basic stitches used in embroidery. Participants will begin with embroidering letters together and end the workshop with some free time to explore freestyling with thread. This workshop will mostly focus on your ability to illustrate with thread. All materials provided. Participants will leave with a small patch they embroidered themselves.

Instructor Kelsey Magnuson discovered textiles while attending Warren Wilson College in Swannonoa, NC. She worked on the Fiber Arts Crew at Warren Wilson, and taught workshops to fellow students and faculty. She also made functional textiles to sell at events and craft fairs. In 2016, Kelsey was awarded Outstanding Student Award by the Surface Design Association. She was the Head of Weaving at a small girls camp in Maine and spent four months traveling the country to perform puppet shows at elementary schools with Red Herring Puppets of Asheville. Kelsey is interested in natural dying, which uses plants to produce color on her textiles to create pieces that are unique to the area she's working in.
