Susie Vickery presents three Maker&Smith workshops on how to embroider a portrait using simple stitching techniques; make a flat, jointed puppet; and articulate an embroidered picture story.

Choose one, two or three of Susie's fabulous workshops:

1. Embroider a Portrait // Saturday 22 + Sunday 23 August, 10am-4pm.

2. Create a 2D Jointed Puppet // Saturday 26 + Sunday 27 September, 10am-4pm.

3. Articulate an Embroidered Story // Saturday 17 + Sunday 18 October, 10am-4pm.

Your ticket price includes:

  • A pack suitable for each workshop, such as fabric, threads, needles, embroidery hoops, pencils and other key materials.
  • Hand-outs to take home
  • Morning and afternoon tea. (Please bring your own lunch.)

What to bring:

Each workshop will have specific requirements which we will email you about in good time before the workshop, but for each one we ask you to bring:

  • Thread clippers or small scissors
  • Your favourite embroidery needles
  • A thimble, if you use one
  • Any embroidery threads that you love.

Some stitching and drawing experience will be handy, but an enthusiasm to grasp new design, textile and construction skills - and an excellent sense of humour - is all you really need.
