Inspired by the fine jewelry from the Good as Gold exhibition, artist Katherine Diuguid leads participants in creating a small motif embellished and embroidered using metallic threads. Once stitched, the motifs may be made into a brooch or earrings.
This virtual workshop consists of two 90-minute Zoom sessions with your instructor separated by a week for independent work. Complete project kits are included; all skill levels welcome.
