Presented by curatorial assistant Marijana Rayl; and artist, designer, and Glassell Junior School instructor Jessica McMahon

Meet up at the Museum for an afternoon of hands-on art making, inspired by Icons of Style: A Century of Fashion Photography. This workshop begins with a tour of the sweeping exhibition. Then learn how to embroider your own original design, using two types of outline stitches, onto a garment that needs an update.

Be sure to bring something from home to work on, such as a piece of clothing, a bag, or a backpack. Necessary stitching supplies are provided, and stitching guides are available to take home. This program is for all levels—beginner, intermediate, and advanced stitchers are welcome.
