Led by textile artist, Andie Reeves, guests are invited to come and learn the basics of embroidery, from choosing threads and fabric, creating designs, and learning different stitching techniques. Participants will receive a hoop and be immersed in an afternoon of stitching unique flora-themed designs.
Veld and Sea will supply all equipment, including hoops, threads, needles and fabric. Crafters will leave with their hoop as well as needle and thread to carry on the new hobby at home. Tea, cake, botanical cocktails and canapés will also be served.
Reeves has a background in fashion and previously worked as a dressmaker, stylist, sewing teacher, and fashion designer. Currently working as a writer/artist/preschool teacher, her art is being exhibited at The Raptor Room and Cavalli Gallery. She is interested in all forms of textile art, especially weaving, embroidery and sewing, and is passionate about teaching others these skills.
