Kantha Stitching Class for Beginners

Learn the ancient form of hand-stitch embroidery in Sydney



2.5 hours Class size 10 to 12     label $55

Are you looking to try out a new hands-on creative hobby that will get you to make something beautiful from scratch? Join Reverse Garbage's stitching class in Sydney for beginners and learn how to create your own embroidered piece for your home!

Kantha is an Indian style of mending. In this gentle class, the instructors at Reverse Garbage will guide you through this popular method of laying fabrics over one another in a pleasing manner, then stitching together to create useful objects that are strong and very pleasing to the eye.

This is a clever way to upcycle old or worn fabrics or perhaps find a purpose for fabric offcuts. During this class, you will learn the skills and start working on your own Kantha project.

You will learn the popular method of layering fabrics and then stitching them together in a patchwork style using colour threads! You'll be able to create your own colour scheme and unique artistic design to create a beautiful upcycled bag or scarf that you can use daily.

If you're looking for a birthday gift experience for your eco-friendly loved one, or you're just looking to become more sustainable yourself, then this embroidery class is a great option for you. You'll leave feeling creatively fulfilled and ready to practise the skills you've learnt to mend and upcycle any garment or fabric item you have!

Anna Keohan Apr 2021


It was an amazing class, I really really loved it and am enthusiastic to continue with more projects using the kantha sewing technique. The teacher Grace was warm and friendly, a great communicator, very creative and helpful, and the time flew by too fast I could have stayed for hours more! There was a generous supply of materials provided to allow us to create interesting designs for ourselves, and to take some extra materials home to finish off our project. Sewing on to a canvas tote bag (provided) was excellent as it means we will have a finished and usable item at the end, rather than a random piece of "sampler". I'd definitely recommend this particular subject and any other technique classes that this teacher might offer in the future. A+

Had a fantastic morning learning all the tips and tricks to Kantha stitching. Grace was a wonderful teacher with a bagful of the most interesting examples incuding coats, bags and scarves.
