As guest artists for the Craft & Quilt fair we're pleased to announce a series of special workshops for visitors to the fair.
A twist on the traditional monogram and thank you letter. This workshop is based on our series of 'Thank you' artworks that we create using our trademark colourful 'painting with thread' style to embroider a colourful and painterly monogram.
During the workshop we'll show you how we use watercoloured sketches for the basis of the lettering design and demonstrate the main stitches we use. Participants will then create their own watercoloured lettering to use for their embroidered monogram artworks. For this workshop we're encouraging everyone to throw away the stitch plan and embrace a freeform organic approach to embroidery. Suitable for all levels.
When: Saturday 18th February, 10.30am - 12.30pm
Duration: 2 hours
Cost $90: includes 1 design, hoop, needle and threads
Where: At the Hobart Craft and Quilt Fair, Derwent Entertainment Centre, Hobart
