Coming up in June at Loop, we are excited to announce the dates of the Miga De Pan embroidery classes! Loop is honoured to host internationally renowned artist Adriana Torres, who is coming all the way from Argentina to teach and inspire. With three individual classes taught over the weekend, you’ll be creating different designs and learning creative stitch techniques.

We are also looking forward to hosting a mini Miga De Pan Pop-Up-Shop at the same time, 5th – 7th June!

The textile history of a country is as rich and varied as the garments and fabric produced.
