Embroidered Spring Flowers! Taught by Nora Rickey

Virtual Event

April 22, 2021 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm CDT

$32

Suitable for ages 12 through adult

Conjure spring flowers as you learn 5 embroidery stitches and create and original floral scene that is colorful and textured!

The stitches you learn in this class  come in handy when creating different floral textures and flowers of all sizes and can be used in other embroidery projects.

Nora will demonstrate Satin, French knot, Bullion knot, Chain stitch, and Spider web stitches. You’ll have a chance to practice these stitches on a separate piece of fabric before using them to create your floral scene utilizing all five stitches learned in the class. Then you’ll will spend some time sketching out your ideas and begin stitching!

Suitable for ages 12 through adult

-Embroidery floss, at least three colors

Embroidered underwear by Nora Rickey

I am a visual and performance artist and educator living in MN. Raised in an artistic household and trained in NYC, I didn’t come into my visual arts practice until I moved back to the sweet Midwest and began exploring and teaching myself fiber arts. Whether a hidden secret or on full display, I love to create piece that transforms the wearer into art. Currently, I work as a fiber arts instructor at Interact Center for the Visual and Performing arts, I curate Collaboret, and I embroider panties and make other art pieces.
