Maximum of 10 students

For anyone who wants to create unique textile art works and not use commercial embroidery patterns, this is the workshop for you!

Students will work with basic equipment and materials so this skill can be practised anywhere, any time. The finished samples will be unique to each person.

The workshop begins with some simple and quick contour drawing exercises in various ways. Objects to draw will be available or students can bring their own. The chosen sketches will be traced or drawn directly on the tissue paper. This is then attached to a selected piece of background material. Follow the drawn lines with needle and thread. Tear away the tissue paper after stitching the drawn lines. Work it further if desired. A series of works can be created from a chosen theme.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and the medium advanced. Basic skills in hand stitching are required for this workshop. Various ways to stich lines and embroidery stitches will be demonstrated during this workshop.

Workshop requirements: available after booking.
