Kicking Off December with an Embroidery Workshop

MPS Art Therapy students were inspired by the textile arts that they worked with in India over the summer and have been considering collaborative weaving as the core of their second-year exhibition. In light of this enthusiasm we decided to invite a textile-based artist to lead an embroidery workshop for our students.

Jeannine Han, an instructor in the Fashion department at Parsons, gave a brief presentation about her work and then we all gathered around the table to learn basic stitches and textile terminology. Once we had properly identified our grain and our cross grain, we hit the ground running and began to fill up our hoops with whatever style of stitch worked best for our chosen image.
