About Tutor: Tania Cohen & Ann-Marie Anderson-Mayes Check the biography for both tutors on our website https://www.tresillianartscentre.wa.gov.au/tutors About the course Embroidery could not be easier to learn. It really is as simple as needle up, needle down. But where are you going to bring your needle up? And what delicious fibres are you going to use? Do you have a story to tell with needle and thread or do you simply want to make beautiful handmade items for your family and friends? This course will teach students the art of colourful, creative embroidery. The emphasis in this course will be on exposing students to a wide range of embroidery techniques including surface stitchery, evenweave embroidery techniques, goldwork and beading, as well as a variety of ethnic embroidery styles. Students can start the course by working a simple introductory project. They will then be free to work on their own embroidery projects drawing on Ann-Marie’s wide experience and varied resources for guidance. Skills taught during the course will include choosing appropriate fabric and threads; getting started on setting up a new project; making up and finishing techniques as required by specific projects; and developing creative confidence in choosing/developing colour schemes and designs. What you need to bring A small pair of sharp scissors suitable for cutting threads; a light and/or magnifier if you normally use these items to assist with your creative pursuits.
