Oxford, MS

Dates: Friday, January 27th & Saturday, January 28th 2017
Times: 10 am - 1 pm
Location: The Powerhouse
Instructor: Denise Bell

The oldest example of appliqué -- an Egyptian funeral tent -- dates to 980 BC and was made of gazelle hides. In the Calaveras Class ("Calaveras" means skull, typically sugar skulls) we'll use the practice of contemporary needle turn appliqué, cotton scraps, embroidery thread, and our wild imaginations to create an appliquéd square featuring a sugar skull as typically seen in Mexican celebrations.

This will be a two day class with 3 hours each day. The first session will focus on the needle turn appliqué technique, the second will focus on free form embroidery to decorate your fabric square. Necessary class supplies include the following: scraps of cotton in a variety of colors and patterns including a 12 inch square of black or dark blue cotton for the background, and a white or off white 10 inch square of cotton for the skull itself. Also required are embroidery floss, wool floss, or perle cotton in a range of bright colors, embroidery needles, appliqué needles (AKA sharps), silk pins (short pins for appliqué), sharp scissors for cutting fabric, a pencil, and a thimble. Basic hand sewing skills needed.

Price: $100
