Trapping Objects, Encrusting Techniques

The trapping technique is worked on two layers of calico, the bottom piece pulled taut in an embroidery hoop. To create a raised surface, items are trapped between the two pieces and worked with hand stitches to complete the design. Please bring a 7 or 8 inch embroidery hoop, small scissors and sewing needles.
