Beginner's Embroidery Class



4 hours 1 to 20 label $80 - $85 ($85 per person when you book for 1 student, $80 pp for 2+ students)


In this fun embroidery class we will be diving straight into the world of thread and colour.

We'll begin the class with some basic colour theory and explore the different types of stitches.
During the class you will learn seventeen stitches that can be used in a variety of ways e.g. Sashiko, Boro, painting with thread and many more!

This is a hands on experience and I will be on hand to help and answer any questions you might have.
You will go home with the skills to embellish your own clothes, homewares and more, as well as your own hand stitched piece.

You will also have access to my textile and design library.


I am located within walking distance to train, bus, ferry & have free secure parking under my building.

5.0 (4)

A fibre artist, designer, teacher and history nut, I am fascinated by all forms of colour and pattern in daily life as an expression of culture and identity.
My influences come from various parts of history both ancient and modern, and the natural world.

I love teaching and sharing what I know, helping people to stretch their skills and create new experiences.

As a teacher with 25 years experience, I get a real buzz when a student who hasn't tried a specfic craft before - not only masters it, but becomes excited by the ways they can use their new skill.

I started in Jewellery design when I was in my early 20's, then discovered that all the things I love to do (design, dye, draw, felt, paint etc) could be used in the practice of 'Free Form Embroidery'.

I taught the 'Foundation course' in Colour & Design at the International School of Colour & Design.

I am a published textile designer & also run week long textile experiences in Tasmania every January.
I have exhibited many of my pieces in a variety of spaces & had one piece auctioned off to raise money for the Embroiderers Guild of NSW.

I bring all of these experiences to my teaching of Free Form Embroidery & encourage students to explore the potential of this art form.

Narda was a lovely teacher and I felt very at ease with asking her any questions I had. She is very skilled in a range of arts and crafts and it was a great experience to learn whilst hearing her stories.

I’m so happy that I found Narda’s embroidery workshop on Classbento. From the moment I arrived Narda was extremely welcoming. She has an unbelievably beautiful space to work in, and is extremely knowledgable on so many topics. I was blown away by the wealth of resources she has to offer plus how passionate she is about sharing her skills with others. I will definitely attend more of her workshops. Thank you Narda!

Super easy to get to from the station and straight away you receive all the embroidery gear you need. After that you learn a wide array of stitches which are taught very clearly and with that and the handy information pack you are given you will have all the tools you need yo get started on embroidering pretty much anything you want. Narda is a lovely teacher who is happy to revise any details as many times as you need and has a wonderful selection of teas to be paired with dessert.
