Embroidery Workshop with Adriana Torres (Miga de Pan):
Weaving an Embroidery

Miga de Pan – Weaving an Embroidery


How to create a raised embroidered pouch

The stitches used to illustrate the pouch are made with the same technique used in loom weaving. The raised embroidery is an effective and fast way to do it. It is perfect to highlight clothing or accessories. The students will learn how to hand-sew the textiles used to create the pouch.

This class is aimed at beginners or students with advanced skills who wish to improve their technique. No previous knowledge required.

We are thrilled that Adriana Torres aka Miga de Pan will be joining us in September providing us with a rare and incredible chance to get a glimpse of her design philosophy, exquisite techniques and extraordinary embroidery. Adriana is coming all the way from Buenos Aires and we can’t wait!
