Drafts and Design is a partnership program among Tulsa Foundation for Architecture and Tulsa breweries that invites guests to participate in a wide variety of hands-on design workshops while enjoying locally crafted beer. From turning historic Tulsa photos into original works of art through hand-tinting to creating Ikebana style floral arrangements, Drafts and Design offers something unique for everyone. Workshops include all necessary supplies and tools and are led by expert facilitators. A variety of local beers may be purchased to enjoy during each workshop directly from the brewery.
Embroidery is a timeless craft that transcends culture and geography, having been found as early as 3500 BC in China. Although it started as a way to tailor and mend clothing, techniques were developed that opened up possibilities for decorative stitching. Contemporary artists and designers use embroidery today to communicate ideas and embellish a variety of materials, including paper.
In this workshop you will learn a variety of stitches that you will use to embellish architectural details from facsimile blueprints of one of Tulsa’s most famous landmarks -The Mayo Hotel. All supplies are included and after the workshop you’ll take home a one-of-a-kind work of art on paper to frame and enjoy for years to come!

ABOUT FACILITATOR, TARYN SINGLETON: Taryn Singleton received her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Arts with a minor in Women and Gender Studies from the College of Charleston in and her MFA in Painting with a minor in Printmaking from The University of Tulsa here in Tulsa, OK. She teaches art full time and exhibits regionally with a wide variety of works ranging from paintings, prints and collages to embroideries that are all connected by her perspective of the world around her.
Her education and philosophy can be seen as she studies life, paralleling it in her visual expression. In her pieces, at times abstract and conceptual, she explores ambiguous spaces in the world. She is particularly concerned with the intersection (or lack thereof) between the masculine and feminine, as well as systematic inequality and different power dynamics in a post-structuralist world. Each question drives artistic decision and evolves as she crafts her narrative into a tangible craft.
Singleton describes it as “creating [an] invented landscape” which she then navigates in all aspects of her pieces such as line, color, shape, pattern, and “the cultivation of accidents.” Her observations of the external world merge with her internal thought processes and become a new creation that continue her discussion of ambiguity.
