Learn a range of embroidery skills in this series of four embroidery classes. You'll be taught how to do embroidery by an experienced teacher and will get an embroidery hoop at your first session to take home!

All sessions are taught by experienced textile artist and teacher, Tamara Russell, and you'll receive lots of support to ensure you create a range of pieces that are special to you.

Course outline:

Session one: An introduction to embroidery
Learn the hand embroidery skills you need to embellish your clothes and homewares. You'll be introduced to some easy and decorative stitches and you'll work on a simple embroidery sampler design to help get you started.

In this class, you will receive an embroidery kit with an embroidery hoop, embroidery scissors, DMC threads, calico, needles, felt to make your own needle case and a booklet of stitches to take home and keep so you can continue your practice.

Session two: Create your own artwork with embroidery
Learn how to create an original piece of wall art with embroidery. You'll sketch your design on paper and transfer it onto backing fabric before using a variety of embroidery stitches to add colour to your work.

You'll be guided throughout and you'll get lots of suggestions from your supportive teacher to make your stitching fun, easy-to-follow and relaxing. In this class, you will be able to use the embroidery kit that you received in session one.

Session three: Applique and embroidery
Learn the basics of applique using Bondaweb. This is a soft adhesive web attached to transfer paper. Using Bondaweb makes bonding fabrics together quick and easy and is a great tool when completing applique work.

After creating some artwork on paper, you'll transfer your design onto backing fabric and use your Bondaweb to add bold colours and patterns to your work. This is a lovely chance to make some fabric art that is super personal to you.

In this class, you will be able to use the embroidery kit that you received in session one.

Session four: Embroidery with beads and texture
Learn how to use beads and texture in your embroidery to create beautiful results. You'll be taught how to make a French knot, turkey work, couching, drizzle and satin stitch. You'll also be shown how to embellish your embroidery with basic beading. You'll use a range of threads such as embroidery floss, metallic thread, cotton thread and wool yarns.

In this class, you will be able to use the embroidery kit that you received in session one.

You'll finish your four-part embroidery course with a range of embroidery skills and finished creations to use and inspire you for future projects.

The Guild of Objects is a Guild for all makers, artists and creatives; whether you are an everyday creative, an experienced creative, an “I need a career shift” creative, someone pursuing their creative journey as a side hustle, or wanting to explore your innate creativity for the first time.

Our mission is to connect you; the creative, with the skills that you need to progress your creativity as well as your creative practice.

In pursuit of our support for all creatives, the Guild runs an extensive number of workshops for all those seeking to connect with their own innate creativity. All our workshops are artist lead and small, we take a maximum of 10 enrolments to give participants the opportunity to let their creative juices flow whilst connecting with some newfound friends around our Guild table!

Whether you're coming into the Guild of Objects to purchase handcrafted artisan wares, attend one of our creative workshops with a local artist or to learn business skills from our experts, we welcome you to our humble home in Hardware Lane, Melbourne.

Our hope is that when you leave our home; that whatever you purchased will be not just your new favourite thing but it will still be your favourite in 10 years’ time; the experience you had and what you created in the workshop at the Guild will leave you talking about how nourished and inspired you feel with your friends, and what you learned in your coaching session empowers you and your business, so much so that even your competitors are talking about your businesses success!
