The Art And Craft Of Hand-Sewing

Teaching Artist Lillis Taylor

Join us for ArtPlay’s first lunchtime learning option for adults. You don’t need a sewing machine to create functional or decorative objects from fabric. Hand-sewing is a versatile art form that allows for a variety of textile manipulations almost impossible to replicate on a machine. Each week, participants will learn a new method of construction resulting in a personal sample encyclopedia for future reference. Don’t let this addictive art form die. The 21st century is ripe for a stitching renaissance.
