Ayana P. (March 2023)
The Contemporary Embroidery Workshop with Lina was fantastic! She moved along at a pace everyone could keep up with, but was also challenging enough. I loved learning about the history of embroidery and her passion to make it accessible for everyone and for people to explore their creativity within the art! Would recommend for anyone and look forward to more in the future!
