Sign up for Intro to Modern Floral Embroidery HERE! Attendees MUST take the Intro to Modern Floral Embroidery class before taking the Intro to Pattern Making class (as attendees will need basic stitch knowledge). Take both classes and get a 20% off discount (already applied before checkout)!
Join Kristen Gula, of Gulush Threads, as she dives into the world of modern floral embroidery and pattern making!
Learn the basics of hand embroidery, how to give it a modern twist, and then complete a modern floral embroidery piece - taking the designs provided (or using a design of your own) and applying your own creativity to make it truly unique!
Kits will be provided and will include everything needed to learn embroidery (and then stitch your own piece for display): 5” wooden embroidery hoop, embroidery needle, embroidery snips as well as your choice of embroidery thread and fabric. Kits will also come with a canvas drawstring bag to take your project and materials home!
The class will cover the basics of modern hand embroidery and will also cover: pattern transfer, how to add details to your piece, and how you can incorporate other mediums into your embroidery (punch needle, needle felting, etc). If you decide to bring your own design/pattern, make sure to have it printed out in black and white (preferably a black and white outline), so transferring the pattern is easier.
About the Instructor:Kristen is a self-taught fiber artist from St. Louis, MO who took her love for hand embroidery to the next level by founding Gulush Threads in 2013.
Botanicals, mostly florals, are the main focus in her work as she takes a modern twist to the age-old medium. She lives by the motto of ‘creating more with less’ by painting with thread instead of using an encyclopedia of stitches. She is mostly known for her hand embroidery floral work which she highlights in her book, 200 Embroidered Flowers. You can also see examples of her work on Instagram, Patreon, & Youtube!
She's been a Fiber Art Instructor since 2016, traveling the country (and parts of Canada) teaching workshops to anyone willing to pick up a needle and thread.
