Spring Stitching back again with a new focus on colour!

If you are keen to try embroidery for the first time or extend on basic skills, bring your ideas and respected artist Sharon Peoples will get you started!

During this 3 week series of workshops, Sharon will demonstrate basic stitches, how to transfer a pattern, what sort of images work best and how to use colour in your work. She will provide lots of samples to inspire you, as well as providing a range of colourful threads, fabrics, needles, hoops and other materials.

Please note: each class runs weekly for 3 hours over 3 weeks and is suitable for teenagers to adults, from beginners to immediate skill levels.

Artist Bio:

Artist Sharon Peoples was born in Melbourne, Australia, into a family that encouraged creativity and making. From a young age, sewing and embroidery became her lifelong passion. Her work primarily explores themes related to the body with a focus on strong decorative elements. Over the past fifteen years Sharon has constructed machine embroidered textiles using soluble fabric to make lace-like structures. These structures are the vehicle for the narratives of life’s complexities. Sharon Peoples has worked as an artist in Canberra for over 20 years, exhibiting nationally and internationally as well as taking on commissioned work. Her work has been collected by the National Gallery of Australia, the National Museum of Australia, the Parliament House Art Collection, and state institutions. Her work is regularly exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions.
