Embroidery is tightly tied to human culture. The earliest known examples-intricately decorated clothes, boots, and hats found in Russia-date back to 30,000 BCE. NYC-based artist Jessica Maffia will teach you six different stitches that you will use to create a botanically-inspired, small work of embroidery to hang in your home. Find inspiration in nature and modern art to bring a contemporary twist to this ancient craft.
