Lily Hinrichsen and Janet Fredericks bring their gentle style of teaching to this hand stitching workshop. In this gathering, participants will be stitching their own small creations using a variety of fabrics, trimmings, threads, and embroidery floss. Janet and Lily have co-taught many collage workshops in Addison County, and will share their expertise in design, color, specific stitches, and how to break the rules. No sewing or stitching experience is necessary. Just bring your wild curiosity.
Janet and Lily exhibited their hand stitched creations in 2022 at the Furchgotte Sourdiffe Gallery in an exhibit entitled “Feral Stitching - Four Artists go Wild”. Together they have co-taught many workshops on the collage process and the vast array of possibilities it can be used for expression and storytelling. They have a gift for kindling safe and inspiring spaces to create in.
