Stitch Technique Module - Metal Thread

Tutor Sharyn Hutchens
Duration Series of workshops over a 3 month duration
Dates Saturdays August 15, September 19 and November 21
Fees Standard Price $330   Members Only Price $270
Fees Due By 15 July
Venue  76 Queen St, Concord West

A proposal of a series of workshops, initially one module of 3 months duration, which will serve as a bridge between the basic knowledge the students learn in Introduction to Embroidery and any further courses of study e.g Contemporary Stitch & Design. 

The workshops can also be undertaken purely to advance and expand students’ knowledge of this technique and will cover: the different metal threads and the way they are used; various tips on handling them discovered from my own work practice; advanced padding techniques; different types of suitable frames and backgrounds; study (deconstruction) of Collection pieces. 

If time permits, or in further workshops, the history of different styles in depth may be covered.

No assessment tasks will be set. A more relaxed atmosphere is envisaged and there are no deadline constraints. The workshops will run for 5 hours/day plus lunch. 

In this module students will build upon their basic knowledge, learn about the large variety of threads available and the different ways they can be used to increase the visual quality of their embroidery. 

Sharyn can be contacted via for more information or expressions of interest.

Skill level:  all levels
