This registration is for hand building techniques only; our wheels are reserved for students currently enrolled in wheel throwing classes at Arbutus Folk School.Instruction is not included in open studio time, though a studio aide will be on hand to answer questions.Whether they be as modest as a serving spoon carved from Maple or as elegant as a Queen Anne table fashioned from Mahogany, the delight we feel in them is tangible and grows immeasurably when the spoon or the table is something we have created ourselves with our own hands.
The stitches we will practice and put onto our sampler include a running stitch, double running stitch, stem (or outline) stitch, backstitch, blanket stitch, French knot, chain stitch, and detached chain stitch.
With time (and group interest) we could go into further versions of the previously mentioned stitches. 8 Skill level: Intermediate Materials provided by student: screw-type 5” embroidery hoop, small scissors, threads, & needles Class Description: This class is for those of you that have at least some embroidery experience and want to (a) add some new stitches to your knowledge and/or (b) brush up on the ones you know.
