Join artist Beizar Aradini for an introduction to hand embroidery and patch making! Participants will learn how to transfer their image onto fabric, use basic hand embroidery techniques to fill in their designs, and line the back of their patch. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring a sketch to base their embroidery on. Simple line drawings or text and smaller designs work best.
