Embroidery Sampler @ Foxtail + Moss Studio
Join us at Foxtail + Moss Studio in Bucktown for an embroidery workshop! I will be showing you several popular stitches using a pre-printed piece of fabric for you to embroider. Embroidery, the art of using thread to embellish fabric, has come back in unique, contemporary ways and we'll look at a few artists who constantly inspire me while we stitch!

I am a Chicago artist and art educator. Inspired by the old sewing circles and expanding on the theme of intimate, creative social gatherings, I created J.Villa Workshop. I am hosting craft events at some of Chicago's most beloved bars, restaurants, coffee houses, boutiques, and cupcake shops. I love utilizing classic, traditional art/craft processes such as; weaving, embroidery, printmaking, and watercolor, and putting a contemporary spin on them to bring you a unique, accessible, and fun learning experience! There's nothing better than gathering with others to make something by hand, learning skills and processes that can be used again and again. At each J.Villa gathering, you will experience a thoughtfully curated event in an inspiring space, hand selected and/or handmade art materials, and enthusiastic guidance through the craft process.
