About the Teacher:
Arwyn Moonrise (yep, that‰۪s her 100% real name) is a textile artist with a natural teaching gift and a warm, practical nature. åÊShe learnedåÊto embroider during her childhood on a small farm in Maine, with summers spent piled into a van, roaming the country with her siblings and free-spirited parents. åʉÛÏMy father owned a single pair of pants and three shirts, so my mother would constantly repair them with handmade patchwork and embroidery,‰ she explains. åÊWatching her mother work, Arwyn learned to stitch at a very young age and took up the craft again as an adult. åÊEncouraged by her mother‰۪s delighted reaction and fueled by a passionate love of vintage clothing and textiles, Arwyn‰۪s contemporary pieces interpret mystical and psychedelic themes with the technical precision and intricacy of a true master.
All St. Lightning classes include elegant compostable plastic cups of wine and fine company. åÊOh, and 10% off anything purchased in the shop that evening.
