Stitching Texas Wild Flowers
CLASS DATE: Saturday, April 27, 3-6 pm
LOCATION: 2313 Beatrice Street #100, 75208
# of Students: 4-12

Indian paintbrushes, prairie cornflowers, black-eyed susans, and bluebonnets. Every spring and summer, native flowers appear as if by magic in our yards, parks and along our highways. In this workshop, you will capture the beauty of Texas wildflowers with embroidery. 

Students will receive 3 wildflower stick and stitch embroidery patterns. The instructor will provide embroidery hoops and fabric to create a final work of art.

Class will include an overview of embroidery techniques including: selecting materials, preparing your hoop, “painting” with thread using the satin stitch, and building texture with additional stitches. Creativity in color selection, stitching, and following your instinct is highly encouraged with guidance from the instructor. Embroidery takes time and shouldn’t be rushed. Time outside of class will be needed to finish your work.

Optional: The stick and stitch patterns are easy to stick onto clothing as well. If you would like to bring your own clothing, choose a fabric without too much stretch and that is not too thick like a chambray or linen shirt or canvas tote bag.

Optional Before Class Assignment:
Find some flowers in your environment. Take time to document with photographs and sketch. Journal about  any memories or associations you have. Follow up with additional research about the flower’s history, growing conditions, etc.
