This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

About the sessions: Over two hours online, you will learn the basics of embroidery and how to develop those skills further from facilitator CJ Starc. This beginner’s embroidery workshop will teach you some basic embroidery stitches such as running stitch, backstitch, and satin stitch. Though these workshops are aimed at beginners, they are open to anyone wanting to sit and craft. You will be sent an embroidery kit (a hoop, embroidery thread, an embroidery needle, fabric, and a booklet) to continue embroidering on your own time! These workshops are by and for trans and gender-diverse people in Victoria, to create a safe healing creative space. Please note- we won't be able to send a kit out in time if you are registering less than three business days in advance, but we will send you a list of items to ensure you have.

About the facilitator: CJ (he/they) is a queer trans non-binary artist, workshop facilitator and curator whose practice focus on organic shapes and textures. They seek to de-gender embroidery, whilst honouring its perception as feminine work. He uses mostly second-hand materials to depict nature and abstracted depictions of the body. They center queer trans kinship and lived experiences.  Their work has been exhibited at Brunswick Street Gallery, the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre and forty-five downstairs gallery, as well as being published in journals such as Baby Teeth and Antithesis. They aim to challenge our perceptions of bodies in a cis-heteronormative patriarchal world. CJ graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Gender Studies and French at the University of Melbourne. He lives and creates on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country
