Liz Kettle Classes: 

Scrolling Around With Hand Stitching 
Join instructor Liz Kettle as you experiment with different types of hand stitches on bits of fabric, and learn how to create fabric collage scrolls wound on vintage wooden spools. Your Scroll can be a color exploration, a theme such as nature, or a special collection of fabrics you love. You will learn a variety of simple hand stitches that create a big impact, so this class is beginner friendly. You will learn fun and creative ways to make those stitches your very own.

Bojagi Banner (hand stitching) 
Learn the ancient hand stitching technique of Bojagi with instructor Liz Kettle. The Bojagi technique is incredibly simple but as you will see, you could take a lifetime to explore all the variations. In this class, you will learn the traditional hand stich techniques and explore collage, as you create a totally unique wall hanging! Bojagi panels have a modern aesthetic despite being an ancient technique. They can be created with sheer and opaque fabrics as well! You can follow tradition and use left over bits and pieces of worn out clothing, or create your panel out of new, coordinated fabrics. Either way, you will leave this class with a beautiful new wall hanging. 

* Materials List will be sent after registration.
