Foundations 2 – Box Making

Tutor Ann-Marie Anderson-Mayes

June 4 2017
Place Guild House, 565 Canning Highway, Alfred Cove
Time 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

A fabric covered box is a beautiful way to showcase a piece of embroidery or a special piece of fabric. This workshop will teach you how to make a square or rectangular box that is fully lined and has a snugly fitting lid.

The method ensures that everything fits together, every time, no matter what size of box you are creating. Once you have mastered the basic techniques, it is a simple matter to extend your repertoire to include circular boxes, hexagonal boxes, boxes with internal dividers etc.

So come and have some fun as you learn to create something useful and beautiful!

3D Wren Workshop

Tutor Jenny Adin-Christie from UK

July 11 - 14 2017
Place Our Lady of Fatima Church Hall, 10 Foss Street, Palmyra
Time 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

You will create a three-dimensional bird; a tiny wren…inspired by the ingenious techniques and novelty needlework items of the 17th century. The wren forms an etui, with space for thimble, a thread cutter in the beak, and flannel needle book pages beneath its wings. The legs and beak are hand cast in solid bronze. The body itself is created using a pre made 3D printed form.

The wren uses a range of traditional raised work techniques with the addition of some new ideas! We will combine needlelace, wired 3D shapes, goldwork, crewel work and surface stitch, on a base of British wool tweeds and baize.

The wren stands as a piece in its own right. However, if desired you may purchase a further project pack to allow you to embroider a mossy hillock for the wren to sit upon, including emery filled pin cushion and space for etui scissors. You may also pre order a hand-made wooden base with or without retractable tape measure mechanism with brass turning dial.
