An introduction to the beautiful art of  applique design.  We will cover basic stitching (with hand-dyed threads) and applique techniques using wool, silk, cotton, and linen.  Apply the techniques and create a project of your own design, such as a bag, wall hanging, pillow, or anything else you envision.  Applique and embroidery are techniques used around the world to adorn everyday items, tell stories, and celebrate the re-use of worn textiles.  Bring  your imagination and see how this traditional technique can be used to create vibrant and original contemporary designs!
