In this course every stitching module requires the students to create their own designs, and be experimental with materials and techniques.

This is one of the elective stitching modules in this course, and as with all these modules the students will:

  •  present a case study on a machine embroidery artist
  •  experiment with materials, threads and techniques in samples during the module;
  •  create a design from primary and/or secondary sources for a stitched work for assessment. One month is given to work on the assessment tasks. The design process is also handed in with the stitched work to be assessed.

Kath Wilkinson is a Textile & Design teacher in Secondary Schools. She is a well-known textile exhibiting artist. Her machine embroidered works are either painterly or lacy. Kath will demonstrate techniques for both    approaches to embroidering on the machine and will guide the students through their experimental work over the three classes.

Even though this module is within a course, it is possible to do it as a stand-alone module for your own interest. You will need to bring your own machine because the Guild’s machines are reserved for those who are flying to Sydney to do the module.
