Free Stitched Embroidery Landscapes Full Day Workshop


Embroidery Landscape 1 by Laura Wasilowski

Densely hand stitched, these small landscape vignettes are created from your original design. They are made with cotton threads and free stitched on hand-dyed silk fabric. The vignettes are rich in color and texture and marks by the maker. You’ll learn about fabric and batting choices, how to transfer your design to the silk, the threads and needles best for stitching, and how to devise embroidery stitch combinations unique to your design. It is a slow, thoughtful, tempo of making intimate art work.

Supplies Participants Should Bring:

  • Batting, 1 piece of wool or other hand quilting type of batting measuring 9” x 6”
  • Parchment paper measuring about 36” long
  • Paper or sketchbook for drawing
  • Pencil with eraser
  • Black Sharpie Fine Point marker
  • Thimble (optional but helpful)
  • Scissors
  • Needle threader


$30 Kit Fee: Includes pre-fused silk fabric, embroidery threads, needles, hand-outs
