We have added another special workshop in May with Sydney Tutor Margaret Light. Marg, as many of you will know, is a very experienced tutor who regularly teaches at The Great Escape and NZ Embroiderers’ Guild Conferences and she has managed to fit in a weekend workshop for us, so this is a great opportunity to learn from a very talented and creative Embroiderer.
Marg has been tutoring in Surface Stitchery throughout Australia and New Zealand since 2004. She was accredited in that technique by the NSW Embroiderers’ Guild in 2007, and specialises in Crewel Embroidery.
This project is a delightful contemporary piece which takes inspiration from Marg's research of early techniques and the application of surface stitches from around the world.
A Linen scarf on grey stonewashed linen, embroidered with silk and linen threads and embellished with a variety of mother of pearl buttons and beads and edged with a ribbon trim. The design is a collection of wildflowers at each end of the scarf which is a generous 1.75cm length.
The workshop will be held at Highbury House, 110 Hinemoa St, Birkenhead, a few doors down from The Embroiderer.
Class is from 9.30am until 3.30pm. Morning tea will be provided and there will be a 30 min break for lunch. You need to bring your own lunch or frequent one of the several cafes nearby.
Skill level: Intermediate or confident beginner.
Cost for the Class is $110.00
Cost of the kit is $80.00. This is for Linen and Threads (Embellishments of your choice are extra)
There will also be a small photocopying charge payable to the tutor.
Enrolment is on a first come first served basis and is secured by payment of the workshop fee.
A refund for cancellation will only be paid if your position can be filled and there will be no refund for cancellation within the final week prior to class.
We will be taking a waiting list if the class is oversubscribed and if there are cancellations we will fill them in order of priority.
Once your place is secured we will send requirement lists and other details and there will be some preparation work prior to the class. At this stage payment for the kit will be required.
To make a booking please ring The Embroiderer on 09 419 0900 or contact us by email.
