Hungarian Embroidery: Craft and Culture

Saturday, March 30, 2019, 8:00 PM

This workshop will introduce students to embroidery through Hungarian craft and culture. Instructor Sarah Pedlow has traveled in Hungary and Romania, spending several years studying embroidered textiles, and stitching alongside women in Transylvania. This class will focus on three of the most well-known styles of Hungarian embroidery: Matyo, Kalocsa, and written embroidery or írásos from Transylvania. A great introduction for beginners, while offering a new stitch and patterns for experienced embroiderers, students will work on a floral pattern on linen that can be made into a pin cushion or small bag, or be added to clothing or a quilt. Students will learn about the history of each style and region and will take home materials to create another piece, as well as additional resources. All materials and snacks are included in the event fee.
