Looking for a unique way to chronicle your travels? Photos are great, but there are even more creative possibilities out there. My Modern Met Academy, our e-learning platform, will show you how in our latest course. Titled Mixed Media Thread Painting: Learn to Embroider Your Travel Memories, artist instructor Maria Zamyatina takes you step by step through the process of sketching for a thread painting project that incorporates watercolor paint.

Mixed Media Thread Painting is a comprehensive course that’s over three hours long. It’s geared towards folks with some knowledge of basic embroidery stitches, although Zamyatina will demonstrate how to take reference photos and draw from them for your hoop art. Next, she’ll show how to transfer an embroidery pattern onto fabric and will then get to stitching. You’ll start by embroidering architecture before moving on to the final details using metallic thread.
The course employs the thread painting technique to add some realistic detail to the scene. “Thread painting might seem challenging because you don’t have a clear pattern to follow,” Zamyatina says. “But once you try it, you will realize how much freedom it gives to you and how great it is for unleashing your creativity and helping you to find a way to express yourself.”
