7/23 | Intro to Modern Embroidery with Meg Rosko
When: Saturday, July 23, 1 pm - 3:30 pm
Where: ROW DTLA
What We’re Doing: Join Meg Rosko, of Nutmeg & Honeybee, as we learn to create a modern embroidery hoop. This class is designed for all skill levels and will include two options for creating a design. The first option is for students who feel comfortable enough to draw on a blank canvas and create their own design. The second option will allow students to receive a pre-drawn embroidery hoop from Meg so that they can focus on the stitches rather than the design. In this 3-hour class, students can expect to learn about satin stitches, french knots, turkey stitches, working with rope and yarn, and learning how to add beads to their hoop. Students will choose their own color palette at the beginning of class and any materials that they use during the workshop will be included in their take-home kit. As attendees will not have the chance to finish their embroidery hoop during class, Meg urges all students to ask as many questions as possible and take videos of the stitches needed to complete at home. Modern embroidery is an art form that allows for a lot of mindful stitching and connecting with other attendees, so it’s the perfect class for anyone looking for a little creative break.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Meg Rosko, of Nutmeg & Honeybee, has created a business centered around creativity, connection, and community. With creative roots in baking, florals, and embroidery, Meg loves to teach students about the importance of color, texture, and fine details throughout her classes. Each class has a balance between instructions and structure as well as creating space for freedom and exploration. Modern embroidery has been one of Meg’s favorite classes to teach because she gets to witness students’ curiosity blossom during their creative process. When Meg is not creating, she is usually snuggling her pup, Oakley, in her sunny San Diego apartment.
