Join us as the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design (SFSNAD). Create this pin or hair comb based on the style of fashion designer, Guo Pei. Learn goldwork stitching and silk shaded satin stitch to stitch the delicate layers of this camellia flower. Finished with Swarovski crystals, this is a perfect accessory to wear when you view the exhibition Guo Pei, Couture Fantasy at the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco!

This member-only workshop will also be given online via Zoom in a separate event on August 26th.
