New Group Correspondence Course: Finding Time with Catherine Jordan

Our Education Department has added a new course to our selection of Group Correspondence Courses: Finding Time with Catherine Jordan.

This group correspondence course will explore the possibilities of interpreting a Zentangle® drawing into an interesting needlework design finished as a booklet cover. Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.

Traditional black work embroidery is used to work the patterning and give dimension to the booklet cover. Additionally, this class will explore combining photo transfer, counted, surface, and padded techniques, watercolor shading, and easy finishing in a fun and spectacular memory booklet! Inside is an accordion folded booklet (3″ x 3″) which may be personalized with sayings and drawings which repeat the patterns and designs on the cover. This is a fun class to learn more about Zentangle and how to convert line drawings into needlework.

Registration for this course is currently available to groups. There is a $200 fee per group, and each student in the group pays $30 for a printed text.

Gather your favorite stitchers, make a group and sign up! If you are interested in registering for this Group Correspondence Course, you  can learn more about the process and download the registration form from our Group Correspondence Course page.
