Stenciled Wildflowers

with Kirsten Aune


Sunday, July 17th, 2022
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Tuition: $36  Materials: $30

Create your own wildflower prints while learning how to surface design on fabric with Kirsten Aune of Kirsten Aune Textiles. Kirsten will show you the basics and some secrets while creating a decorative textile for a variety of functional uses, pillow cover, handbag, tea towel, kitchen hot pad and more. Stenciling fabric is an easy way to create your own print and incorporate it into your future sewing projects, or display your print as an art piece in your home. 

About the instructor: Kirsten Aune is the maker and owner of Kirsten Aune Textiles, a brick and mortar store in Duluth, Minnesota. She has had exhibitions and work in permanent collections across the world, and has received several awards for her textile work. Kirsten creates original geometric and floral designs using stencils that she cuts by hand and then arranges in dynamic visual compositions using bright blocks of color and bold designs. Her artistic style has been called “Modern Scandinavian.” Her connection to Danish, Swedish, and Finnish design is rooted in her childhood, growing up in a home of Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian furniture, and Marimekko wall hangings, that her parents collected when her mother worked in the first Danish furniture store in Minneapolis in the 1950s. Her love of color and simple lines are present in Scandinavian design and is reflected in some of her work.
