• TOPIC: Catalina & Stitch – Letters embroidery

The goal for this workshop is for participants to understand the technical aspects of hand embroidery on paper so they can mix with typography and make it into a textural and dimensional element.
In this workshop, we will go over a variety of basic stitches and participants will develop a sampler on paper.
They will have the opportunity to experiment with different paper qualities and weights.
Once they have had the chance to practice these stitches, they will choose characters and a word that they would like to work on. We will take them through grids, how to use them, and the process of punching holes for the embroidery to begin.

The idea for the workshop is for participants to learn stitches, get comfortable with color, and start a type embroidery project that they can take home with them to finish.

No prior embroidery experience is needed to take this workshop.

Catalina Escallon

I am a Colombian embroidery artist based in Brooklyn, New York.

Textiles have obsessed me since I can remember. Got introduced to textiles when I started sewing with my mom and since then I’ve embarked on exploring and learning everything textile. I like to think of myself as an interdisciplinary visual communicator and a storyteller. I use thread to tell stories and to bridge the digital and analog space. My embroideries are an invitation to touch and an exploration of textile techniques. I bring dimensionality with thread to tell stories and create memories. I enjoy making handmade accessible, enjoyable and colorful.

There is something magical about working with your hands in a slow and repetitive motion. For me, embroidery kept me engaged and motivated through this year of so much anxiety and uncertainty. I embroidered heavily through weeks of lockdown and haven’t been able to stop since. There is something meditative and relaxing about this process and would love to share that joy with you! The subject of my embroideries has been places because, as an immigrant, I found new meaning in places I have been and seen these experiences differently.
