Creative Sewing, STEAMfest Workshop for Youth

Saturday, November 21, 2020

Ages 7 to 11; Registration is required.

Join artist Suzanne Herbert-Forton for STEAM themed embroidery fun. Participants will learn how to use the components of the felt embroidery kit to create their own unique embroidered artwork.  In the online workshop Suzanne will demonstrate the how to create a design, then use that design as a pattern.  She will show participants how to cut out felt shapes using the pattern.  We will discuss the technique of appliqué, a fancy term for sewing fabric shapes to a background. Participants will learn how to add details with smaller shapes of felt. For the finishing touches, Suzanne will demonstrate how to add details with embroidery stitches.

Parents/Guardians and older siblings are welcome to join the workshop to work alongside their young sewing artist.  For beginners to immediate sewing artists.

Workshop participants will be provided with a kit containing the necessary materials and instructions.
