About the Workshop

We welcome you to join an hour-long hand-embroidery class with a message! Courtney, your host, is passionate about creating modern embroidery and spreading body positivity within her community.

This workshop is suitable for all skill levels, and beginners are encouraged to join! We will be starting with the very core basics, including how to set up an embroidery hoop, transferring your stencil to your fabric, and how to do basic stitches to create a wonderful piece of custom art. The piece created will be made to be very minimalist, which allows you to add your own flare!

You are invited to use any photo or stencil of your choosing, however one will be provided in case you're not sure where to start! 

You will need the following materials, which can be purchased at any craft store or online at many vendors:

- One embroidery hoop (6" on average)

- Fabric of your choosing

- One embroidery needle

- One count of embroidery floss

- One sheet of graphite paper, or water soluble stabilizer (any of these will do https://www.amazon.ca/s?k=water+soluble+stabilizer&crid=WKG00SLRJPAU&sprefix=water+solu%2Caps%2C162&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_10) 

- A pencil or pen for tracing

We look forward to stitching with you, and having a very friendly dialogue surrounding body positivity and wellness in your community!

About our Host:

In her day job, Courtney is an Operations Manager in the beauty industry in Toronto, meaning she gets to work with a diverse group of confident women each and every day! In her off time, she can be found spending time exploring the city with friends, catching up on good TV with her cat, Daisy, and of course, working on hand-embroidery to fill up her bedroom wall. Courtney has been interested in embroidery on-and-off over the years, however found an appreciation for body and sex positive artwork that stimulates meaningful conversation about mental wellness in our society. Most of her handmade pieces are minimalist in nature and relatively easy to follow. She appreciates clean linework and lots of negative space that allows the imagination to fill in the details.

Accessibility Level: Easy. This workshop can be accessed online through our Boomerang at Home online feature. This is a video conference experience that can be accessed via Mobile, iPad, and Computer devices.
