What You'll Do

No watercolors, no brushes—Katie Netti's preferred painting method relies on a needle and thread. In a five-hour workshop, she demonstrates how to interpret and recreate a photograph of your choice using a technique called embroidery painting. While providing all necessary materials, she helps even those who've never sewed before create a colorful work of art.

  • Transfer a Photo onto Fabric
    Three days before class, send Katie a JPEG of any image you want so she can make a laser-jet printout guide. Then, on the day of the class, you'll transfer the ink of the picture onto fabric by using a burnishing method.

  • Stitch a Photograph
    With a blend of long and short stitches, create an expressive interpretation of the photograph on the fabric. While you can follow the guide image, you can also add a personal touch to create something more impressionistic or abstract.

  • Take The Lesson Home
    Katie doles out any tools and tips needed for you to finish the design at home.
