Join contemporary fiber artist Sarah K. Benning for an afternoon of botanical stitching! Sarah will guide participants step by step through her contemporary embroidery process demonstrating a number of stitches and discussing her favorite materials, inspirations, and techniques. All materials will be provided including a 5 inch wooden embroidery hoop, pencil, scissors, fabric, workshop exclusive botanical patterns, and thread from DMC. Absolutely no experience is necessary, though all skill levels are welcome!

Though Sarah's formal training and background are in the fine arts, she is self-taught in the craft of embroidery.  She approaches each piece primarily as an illustration, often abandoning traditional stitches and techniques in favor of bold shapes, playful patterns, and contemporary subject matter.  Her emphasis on drawing, composition, and color choice keeps her work fresh and vibrant pulling embroidery out of the past and into the present.
