Ukrop Embroidery Workshops! says
The next TWO thursdays, Ukrop invites you to introductory workshops into the beautiful and mystical world of Ukrainian Embroidery.

Thursday May 26
Thursday June 2

Bo┼żena Hrycyna will be sharing what she has learned over the years about the special tradition of embroidery in Ukrainian culture, and leading you through working with traditional materials and patterns.

The first class will focus on learning several counted stitches and creating a small sampler.

The second class we will delve into the wonderful world of cross stitch and roses! Recognizable the world over, these roses represent tradition and nostalgia for some, and modernity (and the demise of tradition) for others . Come find out why roses are so controversial!

Attendance at both workshops is not mandatory, but the second workshop will build on skills taught in the first. But don't worry if you can't make both, they work as stand alone workshops! Drop-ins are ok, but *** if you can, please pre-register to ensure that there are enough materials for you.***

Please email to reserve a spot. $10-20 PWYC.
