Sculptural Embroidery and Resin Embedding

Dates Sat 22 and Sun 23 September 9.30am – 4.30pm Catered Workshop

Fees Due By Sat 11 August 2018
Venue  76 Queen St, Concord West NSW 

This technique-based workshop explores the unique embroidery processes that I use in my artworks.  Over the two days we will create a range of embroidered sculptures. The sewing machine will be transformed into an unconventional drawing tool and you will be in control of every stitch allowing your creativity and imagination to run wild. By stitching onto a combination of woven and water-soluble fabrics we will create a range of experimental embroidered artworks.  

This workshop also includes an introduction to basic resin embedding and casting processes. Small objects will be embedded into resin blocks creating freestanding sculptures, small jewelry pieces or unique sculpture stands for your embroidered creations.

Suited to all levels. No experience is necessary but basic sewing machine operation skills will be helpful.

Enrol in this Workshop

You can book a place in this workshop by contacting the Embroiderers' Guild NSW.

Some workshops will have an additional charge for kits - please enquire at the time of booking.

The Festival program has been widely publicised and shared both locally and internationally through word of mouth, marketing and social media.  Please read workshop information and policies carefully, as there are slight differences in the way we are handling bookings for the Festival.  A number of dedicated places will be held for Guild members in all workshops for the first two weeks. We suggest that you book within the first two weeks to avoid disappointment.

Enrolments can be made by email, phone, or in person and must be accompanied by either the full payment or a non-refundable deposit of $30.00 per workshop per day.  When a deposit only has been paid, the balance must be paid in full by the “Payment Due Date” which is six (6) weeks before the workshop.  The place of any student who has not paid the full fee by the “Payment Due Date” may then be taken by a student on the waiting list.  Workshop requirements will be sent out five (5) weeks prior to the workshop commencement to fully paid participants.  
Refund / Cancellation Policy:    
The Guild reserves the right to cancel a workshop due to lack of numbers or unforeseen circumstances.  In this situation, a full refund will be made to participants.  In addition to the non-refundable deposit of $30 per day, cancellations by workshop participants less than 2 weeks prior to the workshop will attract a fee if the Guild is not able to fill your place.  The Guild will endeavour to fill last minute places from the waiting list, however, if this is not possible, the cancellation fee will be 25% of the workshop cost.
