Cross stitch is making a comeback! Just like the art of macramé, and the popular appeal of Leonardo DiCaprio, everything that’s old is new again. Learn (or re-learn) the easy and fun art of turning little thread x’s into beautiful or quirky designs. By the end of the class, you’ll walk away with a new little cross stitched Grumpy Cat to keep by your side.
We’ll start off with the basics, what counted cross-stitch is, what kind of materials you use to do it, and how to make that perfect X. You’ll learn the technique of backstitch too. Then comes the most important part: you will learn the valuable life skill of how to cross stitch a ‘Grumpy Cat’ design, which you can complete at home if time runs out. We’ll also cover where to find inspiration for more quirky cross-stitch.
Kate is a craft superhero: by day she works in radio, glued to a computer – but by night, she turns her talented hands to all different kinds of art. Kate specifically likes cross-stitch because she can do it at the beach, where it isn’t always practical to bring her other art supplies. Kate has been doing cross-stitch on and off since she was about 8, and is keen to share the love.
