2024-08-10 – Introduction to Wool Embroidery (Online)



Three Saturdays, August 10-24 (3:00-5:00 pm CT)


Laura Berlage


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Embroidering with wool has captivated imaginations since at least the Viking Age, offering beautiful and textured means for stitched expression. Dive into this world and learn about its many iterations over the centuries with this immersive introductory class, while stitching your own floral piece. During the course, students will learn 14 different stitches, how best to utilize them in a design, and good process discipline while stitching — skills and concepts that you can apply to any number of future embroidery endeavors. Experience the fluidity of this freestyle embroidery using wool yarn from the instructor’s sheep. Great for beginners or those with some embroidery experience who are looking to master the finer points of decorative stitching with wool.



This class includes a kit shipped to your home with all the materials you need to be successful (a $55 value). The kit includes white wool yarn from the instructor's sheep, cotton fabric backing with hand-drawn design, embroidery needle, printed pattern, and a class handout.
Students must provide an 8-inch embroidery hoop, sharp thread scissors, a needle and thread for attaching bias tape to hoop, and good lighting. Embroidery stands are optional, if desired.
