ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7)-- Make your art pop at the Taubman Museum of Art Saturday, September 7 with their embroidered photographs workshop.

Use thread to add texture to your favorite photograph without any sewing experience needed. Bring your hands and not much else, as the supplies will be provided for you upon arrival to the museum.

The first part of your class will include basic stitching practices and sewing into paper.

After that, you're ready to get started embroidering your favorite black and white photograph and leave with a piece of your very own art.

Tickets to participate are $40 for the public, and $35 for members. Participants are asked to email their high resolution photos before arrival to the instructor (alee@taubmanmuseum.org).
