Sewing Class: Persian Felt Animals

Learn how to make Persian felt animals for beginners



3 hours Class size 12 to 60     label $70

Share some traditional Persian tea while artist Hilin teaches the tricks and techniques to make your very own toy felt animals, a craft hailing all the way from the artist’s home country of Iran.

Hilin will introduce you to stitching techniques and fabric patterns that can be used for other handmade textile and felt-based animals and toys, as well as for what you’ll create during the class. You will have the opportunity to take home their own handmade felt animal crafted during the workshop.

They will also take home a pack of patterns for other animals that can be made in varying sizes, allowing them to continue creating after the class.

*This class is part of a new workshop series ‘Art From The World, ’ an initiative led by Work-Shop and Welcome Studio.

Hilin Kazemi is a Welcome Studio artist, an art-based social enterprise partnering with people seeking asylum to create positive social change and spread a message of ‘welcome’. Welcome Studio artists are from refugee backgrounds or are currently seeking asylum in Australia. They bring and share art and craft skills from their own cultures and experiences that enrich our Australian culture and society. Profits from these workshops will fund community projects and art workshops with Sydney’s refugee community. 

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.

Hilin Kazemi is a teacher from Iran who arrived in Australia in 2013. As an art and craft-maker in Iran Hilin earned an income from her art practice so she could contribute to her university fees and support her family. Hilin works across a range of materials and craft styles, much of which represents traditional techniques from her home country and surrounding areas such as artworks made with wheat stems, felt toy animals and pearl beading. Hilin has always taken creative inspiration from her mother in Iran and many of the techniques used in her work are learnt directly from her.
