CE artist Maria Berrios on a recent field trip to San Francisco School of Needlework and Design

Join us at the Sixteenth Street studio with San Francisco School of Needlework and Design (SF SNAD) as we celebrate the closing of our acclaimed fashion exhibition Fabulate! with an interactive workshop focused on one of the processes behind the magic--embellishment! Whether you're gearing up to "fabulate" your own holiday gifts or sprucing up your wardrobe, the art of embellishment is for everyone.

Get inspired by the garments in Fabulate! and learn hand embroidery and fashion embellishment techniques from the instructors of San Francisco School of Needlework and Design! Bring in your own clothing items or accessories such as hats or bags and learn how to embellish and make them unique using techniques such as embroidery and appliqué. If you don't bring your own items to embellish, you will be provided with plain fabric for stitching.

Our friendly instructors will take you through the whole process including how to transfer a design onto fabric and how to stitch it. You will have the option to work with designs by Creativity Explored artists or you may choose to come up with a design of your own.
