A continuation of the Beginner Embroidery Workshop 101, this secondary embroidery workshop will focus on even more fundamental stitches and techniques to add to your embroidery repertoire.**
This comprehensive masterclass is devoted to expanding upon the fundamental stitches of traditional hand embroidery. Guided by textile & fashion designer Eloïse Ptito-Echeverria, this workshop is open to beginners who wish to immerse themselves even further into the art of embroidery. Embroidery 102 will primarily focus on various filling stitches, florals, couching techniques, and more.
With a background in Rococo hand-embroidery training and almost 10 years of experience in both traditional and experimental stitching, Eloïse will teach you all essential stitches, making the possibilities of what you can create truly endless.
The masterclass will begin with a brief presentation introducing the history of embroidery, Eloïse’s personal embroidery work, along with examples of other innovative embroidery artists.
Instructions will be provided for students’ future reference and stitching repertoire.
All students who book both workshops as a bundle will be able to create a fabric book / textile journal where they can keep all the new stitches they have learned. Students also have the opportunity to book two workshops as a bundle for an additional 10% discount.
About Eloïse Ptito
Originally from Montréal, Eloïse Ptito-Echeverria is a textile designer and curator currently based in Amsterdam, NL. Driven by intelligent print and ethical design, she possesses a particular penchant for textiles, embroidery, and colour. After completing her Fine Arts degree in 2011, she lived in Santiago, Chile for a year where she trained in Rococo hand- embroidery and Shibori. She also studied Precolumbian-Andina textiles at l’Universidad Catolica de Diseño. All of these experiences have collectively impacted her aesthetic vocabulary, resulting in a heavily art-based design ethos that insists upon embedding her work with the empowering qualities of colour, the textile practices of her mixed heritage, and the emotional recycling of personal materials. Paying very little attention to current fads, her ultimate goal is to create soulful heirloom pieces that will be passed down from generation to generation. She is a graduate of the Ryerson Fashion Design Program and was awarded Brettons’ Designer of the Year. Her work has been featured in Selvedge Magazine (UK), Textielplus, The Toronto Star, The Kit, Not Just a Label, Blanc Magazine, and more.
