Senior College – Redwork

March 26 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Illustrating Nature In Redwork Embroidery is a spring 2024 Senior College at Belfast course hosted at First Church in Belfast.

Beginning with a historical review of embroidery and redwork, popular in the 1800s, we will create a two panel quilted piece of native flora or fauna of our choice. Participants will choose images of chosen subjects and transfer the designs to cloth. Using basic redwork stitches — back, running, stem and French knots as different line quality for the images, we will then quilt the panels with a border.

Participants will also create individual stitch samples and online “stitch book.”

This class is for anyone that enjoys flora and fauna, wild and not-so, large and small. Anyone new or experienced with embroidery is welcome. Come prepared to do some creating, cooperative learning and sharing.

Class begins 3/26/24, visit https://belfastseniorcollege.org/event-5616861 FMI or to register.
