I do love my contemporary designs but my heart goes back to the traditional embroideries of my home in Poland.
Traditional Polish Embroidery Workshop - Tuesday 24th September 10am-4pm
If the words Eastern European Folk Crafts conjure up rich colours, textures and a bit of magic you’re spot on. This is exactly what you can create in this very special workshop and only the second time I am offering it in Sydney. I have created a beautiful design which you will learn from start to finish in this all day class. This design comes from a traditional women’s bodice and is gloriously colourful and vibrant. The workshop focusses on:
use of colour including blending threads to create your own unique colours
easy ways with the satin stitch (and I mean E..A..S..Y..)
french knots (don’t worry I’ve become a master at teaching this fussy little thing)
fly stitch like you’ve probably never used before even if you know fly stitch
creating outlines and textures quickly and easily without additional stitching to define edges
seed stitch, stem stitch, single stitch
my favourite tips and tricks that will save your sanity and time
It’s also important to note here that this workshop absolutely welcomes beginners. We all start off at the same place and after a while everyone is going at their own pace. I keep my classes small to enable me to see everyone individually and help.
You will walk away armed with new skills, a new project to finish quickly and new found inspiration!
All materials provided, plus I will be sharing other examples of traditional Polish embroideries
Wooden embroidery hoop
High grade Russian linen with design screen printed on (no need to transfer design)
