The first few workshops will be help in June up near my hometown of Newcastle. Both one and two day workshops are being offered and places are limited - so get in quickly.
One Day Sculptural Embroidery Workshop with Meredith Woolnough
6th July 2013
Newcastle Community Arts Centre
In this one day workshop the sewing machine will be transformed into an unconventional drawing tool and you will be in control of every stitch allowing your creativity to run wild. We will explore the use of freehand machine embroider on fabric and water soluble stabiliser to create a range of embroidered samples. We will also look at moulding these pieces around object to create freestanding sculptures.
Participants will need to bring their own sewing machine and darning/freehand embroidery foot.
Two Day Sculptural Embroidery and Resin Setting workshop with Meredith Woolnough
13 - 14th July 2013

This two day workshop will include all of the activities covered in the one day workshop but also explore the process of embedding artworks into resin blocks. Participants will need to bring their own sewing machine and darning/freehand embroidery foot.

I will also be running a two day workshop in Epping (Sydney) in September
