No experience necessary. All supplies included. This is the first in a series of needle art classes.
Location: Anderson Perry Annex 1901 N. Fir Street in La Grande
Teaching Artist: Linda Schreiner
Cost: $60 Member / $75 Non-Member
Artist Bio: Linda has been drawn to Japanese aesthetics for many years and feels that the simplicity of design in sashiko, with high-contrast thread on indigo blue, is meditative and stimulating at the same time. Sashiko also appeals to her because she likes to use supplies frugally.
