Learn to embroider on the fragile surface of prints, photographs and other works on paper. Using a needle and thread we will add texture, dimension and meaning to favorite imagery. Students will bring a photo, magazine page, poster, or other 2 dimensional paper images to class. We will spend time considering each individual’s design and then stitch it to life. The properties of paper are different fabric and require adaptations to traditional embroidery methods. Jodi will share her approaches with demos and samples. Work of other embroidery fiber artists will be discussed too. 

Beginner-level experience with embroidery is helpful but not necessary.
