Join Jessica Lewis Stephens and Tammy White for Beeswax and Stitches on Sunday, November 12 from noon to 4:00.
Using naturally dyed fabrics from the Sugarhouse Workshop stash and naturally dyed cotton thread, we’ll work together to make sweet quilted potholders or tea mats. Spend a little time designing and sewing your quilt square, then relax into the meditative process of hand stitching with linen, cotton, and wool. Several stitches will be demonstrated from functional and simple sashiko-inspired stitches to more decorative, illustrative stitches. At the end of our afternoon, you’ll have a small mat or potholder to add color and love to your handmade kitchen, and the inspiration and skills to make more for winter gift-giving.
All fabrics and materials will be provided.
With beeswax from the Wing & A Prayer Farm honeybees, we’ll prepare eco-friendly food wraps made with organic cotton and a few simple stitches. These easy to prepare wraps keep your food fresh and are reuseable, longlasting, and smell like honey! Learn how simple it is to make the world a better place by using and reusing natural materials in your kitchen.
For a bit of whimsy and aromatherapy, additionally we’ll dip cones into the bees’ wax for ornaments and room fragrance. Go home with your own kitchen goods or gift them to loved ones and be inspired in your seasonal making.
Email hello@wingandaprayerfarm to register for the afternoon. Class size limited to 8. Workshop cost, includes materials, refreshments and tutelage: $100.
