A two day workshop in Needle Lace for beginners

About this event

Another Workshop!

So. The first Needle Lace workshop booked out pretty quick. So here's another! I'll be running a Needle Lace course here in Sydney, this July. Suitable for absolute beginners, even if you've never picked up a needle, this is for you.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

We'll cover all the basics, setting up your piece, stitching a series of basic stitches,  combining and experimenting with techniques.

You'll walk away with a detailed sampler and a BUNCH of new needle-weilding skills.⚡ ⚡

WHY SHOULD YOU DO THIS COURSE?

Needle lace is a gorgeous, versatile craft with a detailed history reaching back into the 16th century. It's gorgeous, sumptuous, and based on really simple principles, so it's easy to pick up.

Also, if meditative slow stitching is your thing, this will be your jam. Self-care factor through the roof⚡

Why am I teaching? I've been making, studying and exhibiting Needle Lace for 6 years now, here in Australia and occasionally the USA. I design and create Needle Lace pieces using a combo of Reticella, Aemilia Ars, Venetian Gros Point and Punto in Aria techniques to make contemporary images that explore the mundane, the frustrating and the tiny magical moments of contemporary life. I bloody love this technique and want everyone to join the club. 

WHERE AND WHEN

Gallery 76:

WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO BRING:
