Decorate your own clothes! Embroidery with Claribel / TBD
Claribel is our friend from Sumpango, a town known for beautiful traditional neckline embroidery full of flowers. In this hour-long class, we will take a look at how Claribel has adapted the traditional technique for decorating modern clothing. Take a look at images for inspiration! We will go over individual stitches so that you can decorate your own blouse, sweater, and more.
The class will be held on Saturday, June 5th, 10-11am Guatemala time with Claribel as the teacher and Mari as the translator/moderator.
An email with more details will be sent a few days before the class, including the Zoom meeting invitation and a PDF with instructions to facilitate following along. The class will be recorded and shared privately, so participants will be able to go back and review the material at their leisure.
