Smash & Stitch
April 9 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$50
Join Robin Schweitzer and learn about botanical dye techniques on silk and the basics of embroidery stitching and design. We will begin with a farm tour and nature walk, foraging for natural dyes as we go. Once we’ve collected our goodies, we will be smashing the plants to extract their dye. Our gentler side will be rewarded by time spent learning embroidery stitching and design.
Light refreshments will be served.
The daughter of a Mexican mother and American father, Robin Schweitzer grew up in the Bronx. After a successful 38-year career in the fashion industry, Robin founded the HOOP in New York City. Born out of her childhood summers in Mexico City stitching alongside her grandmother, mother, aunts and cousins, the HOOP serves as an untethered hangout of curious creatives to fastidiously learn stitching, fiber craft, and life lessons, too.
