In our beginners embroidery workshop you will learn techniques that will allow you to create a beautiful neat monogram over three hours. Having learnt embroidery, you will embellish your own creations, purchased items and more. Take your simple everyday objects and make them artworks that will bring you joy to use.
This workshop is with Hozanna, a Japanese designer and embroidery artist currently in Australia. You can see her inspiring work under her label Towelket Tokyo by clicking here. The photographed artwork is also by Hozanna.
Learn how to work with embroidery floss and achieve neat stitching. You'll make samplers of running stitch, back stitch, straight stitch, cross stitch, stem stitch, split stitch and combine your skills to cross stitch your monogram on the fabric cover of your embroidery sampler (you may choose to embroider a different object like a blouse collar or handkerchief).

Students can choose to buy an embroidery class kit (which includes the items listed under what to bring) and continue on with your new love, or you can use workshop supplies (but you'll need to buy more supplies to work on at home).
