Small group Tote Embroidery with Claribel (in-person) / TBD
//This is an in-person outdoor embroidery class held at our studio garden in central Antigua. Claribel speaks Spanish, and English interpretation can be arranged with Kakaw staff. COVID safety protocols are observed and the exact address will be sent via email upon registering.// Español abajo.
Claribel is our friend from Sumpango, a town known for beautiful traditional neckline embroidery full of flowers. This 2-hour class includes all the materials to embroider your own bag and a PDF guide with instruction on each of the traditional stitches for neckline embroidery, as seen in the images.
The canvas tote made by Creamos is already stenciled by Claribel for easy embroidery, and it looks great with the naturally-dyed cotton threads that we like to use. You'll be able to choose your own color preferences.
The class will be held on Saturday, May 27th, from 10am-12noon Guatemala time with Claribel as the teacher and Evelyn as the facilitator and if necessary, translator.
