I have been a professional tutor in the past, but this will be my first formal workshop, so enrollment is extremely limited. Please contact me to sign up for the workshop. Payment is required in advance to reserve your space in the workshop, and is non-refundable. If you are not able to attend this time, don't worry. I am planning to offer this class again in January.
This course requires no prior knowledge of embroidery or corset making. Flossing may be added to a corset at any time, even years after it is made. We will discuss the basics of embroidery at the very beginning of the class. Attendees will become familiar with the basic materials and techniques involved in corset flossing. We will study and practice many different functional and decorative flossing stitches along with their variations. We will work on creating a flossing sampler. Attendees have the option of bringing in a corset they would like to floss, and will have the opportunity to discuss possible design choices.
