Embroidery is the craft of decorating fabric or other materials using a needle to apply thread or yarn. Hand embroidery is one of the oldest and most beautiful sewing skills one could master.
Students will learn basic embroidery stitches and techniques as well as ways of using this ancient technique in parts of our modern lives. (Materials included)

Juliana Scherzer – is a textile artist working out of Toronto, Canada with a Bachelor of Craft and Design, focused in Textiles from Sheridan College. Juliana works primarily in free-motion embroidery on water soluble fabric, creating 3D structures out of thread. Her work seeks to reflect the duality of the known and unknown places of textiles in our lives, a concept she seeks to explore through various themes, particularly within biology. Juliana has worked with children teaching them about art for three years and wants to go forward teaching people the value of art and craft in our lives, through sharing her knowledge and learning from others.
