Design It Yourself: Embroidered Patches

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

Join us on April 15 from 3:30-5:30pm and design a way to wear your heart on your sleeve - literally.

In countercultures, patches are a way to protest, express, and declare solidarity. And the recent rise of the activist and DIY/maker movements has  continued to fuel the popularity of patches.

In this workshop, we’ll talk about the history of patches and then you’ll dive in to making your own. You’ll design your pattern, learn embroidery strategies, and start stitching. We’ll have inspiration available and some sample patterns to draw from, but start thinking about your subject matter now and bring some inspo with you.

Just bring your ideas. All materials are provided.

Participation and Materials Fee:
$30 for non-members, $25 for MODA members. This fee covers everything you need to create and bring home your own awesome patch: cloth, felt, needle, threader, and embroidery floss. It also includes admission to MODA’s current exhibition.
