Edges Frayed Workshops
Through this series of workshops, learn to create lovely at-home embroidery artworks through three pre-recorded workshops with easy-to-follow instructions. Lessons are created by local professional artists Bhavna Mehta, Michelle Montjoy and Irma Sofia Poeter as part of the William D. Cannon Gallery exhibit, Edges Frayed. These interactive lessons are suitable for adults and students ages 10 and up, no experience needed.
Using hankies, participants will embroider their favorite word, phrase, poem or sentence. With the meditative quality of embroidery to underscore one's connection to language and a re-interpretation of domestic craft, participants will learn various techniques to make their own emblematic hankie for wiping tears or pinning to the wall.

Workshop with Irma Sofia Poeter (Coming Soon!)
