Embroidered Lettering Workshop
Make a statement with your denim! In this class, you'll learn how to stitch large-scale embroidered lettering on denim using a special technique that's super FAST and surprisingly easy!
Using a special kantan beading needle, you'll learn to work embroidered chain stitch by hand -- the perfect technique for spelling out words and phrases on denim. Brooklyn-based instructor Nicole Adams will lead this workshop.
This class will cover:
- Designing and planning your text
- How to transfer your text to fabric
- How to use a kantan needle to create chain stitches by hand
- Tips and tricks for success!
Students must bring their own denim garment to embroider; jean jackets are recommended, but denim button-down shirts work well too. Kantan needle tools and embroidery floss will be provided for use during class.
Students will leave with a finished embroidered word or phrase on their denim piece!
