Product Description
This workshop explores the various sculptural possibilities of the freehand machine embroidery technique. By stitching various networks onto a water-soluble fabric we will create a range of experimental embroidered sculptures.
  • Learn to use your sewing machine as an unconventional drawing tool with the freehand embroidery technique.
  • Draw with stitch onto water-soluble fabric creating a range of experimental structures and networks
  • Shape and mold your embroideries into various sculptural forms.
  • Students can expect to create their own unique artworks including freestanding bowls and other experimental stitched surfaces.
Suited to all levels. No experience is necessary but basic sewing machine operation skills will be helpful.

Student requirement list:
  • A sewing machine with its standard accessories including sewing table. Your machine must be suitable for FREE MOTION EMBROIDERY/DARNING and have the ability to turn the ‘feed teeth down’. Please test your machine before you arrive to make sure it is in good condition and sewing well.
  • A freehand embroidery foot or darning foot for your sewing machine.  This foot does not normally come standard with machines and may need to be purchased separately.
  • Spare sewing machine needles (sharp or jeans needles recommended)
  • Bobbins suited to your machine
  • A thread stand (if you like to work with one)
  • A small machine embroidery hoop (15 – 25cm is good). I prefer the sturdy wooden machine embroidery hoops but any hoop with a nice strong hold will be fine.
  • 1 or 2 Squares of sample fabric to fit your embroidery hoop (calico suggested but any woven fabric is suitable)
  • Good quality sewing /embroidery threads of your choice (I use polyester machine embroidery thread, but feel free to bring along cotton/wool/metallic threads if you like to work with those).
  • Embroidery scissors
  • Fabric scissors
  • Paper towel
  • Sketch book and pencils/pens
Student material fee: ($10 per student) paid on the day.
This fee includes water-soluble fabric, a limited range of embroidery threads and various other equipment and consumables provided by the tutor.

Please note there is no refund on this class if you cant attend. It is your responsibility to sell your place.
We will have a waiting list to help you but no promise is made to find your replacement.
