Intermediate Embroidery: Getting Creative with Printed Fabrics

My Modern Met Academy

Learn mixed media techniques to take your painting to a new level. Through My Modern Met Academy, our online learning platform, you'll unleash your creativity in classes taught by industry experts. 

There are many ways to get creative with embroidery. In fact, you would be amazed at what a humble needle and thread can produce. But having the idea and actually making something are two different things.

Luckily, with the help of artist Floor Giebels, you’ll get step-by-step instructions on how to craft awesome embroidery on printed fabrics. Her course titled Intermediate Embroidery: Getting Creative with Printed Fabrics is now available on our e-learning platform, My Modern Met Academy.

Over the course of about two hours, Giebels will show you how to combine embroidery with fabric that's adorned with a photograph. Using that as the base, she’ll go into techniques for stitching over the image and enhancing it with thread. The class takes you through two projects: creating realistic hair embroidery and stitching realistic clothing. When you’re done, she’ll demonstrate how to finish and frame your hoops for display.

About Floor Giebels

Having studied graphic design, after graduating Floor found her artistic freedom and expression through the more traditional art of embroidery. Entirely self-taught, she started her artistic journey in 2016 and is continually learning new skills and applying them to her work. She likes to explore the boundaries of traditional hand embroidery by creating mixed media pieces—using different materials and techniques to create contrast and compliment the thread itself. Inspired by this coastal location, a favorite topic to explore in her pieces is the interplay between textures and water. By sharing her knowledge she hopes to inspire others to take the same steps she did—to discover the joy of hand embroidery. Join her, and let’s create something beautiful, together!
