Embellished Insects Embroidery - 27th April


Learn the basics of embroidery and embellishment techniques in this new workshop with fiber artist Sian Rafferty from Fern and Thistle Co. In this three-hour class you will work on a beaded insect pattern, leaving with everything you need to finish a modern baroque inspired design including:

  • All the required materials
  • Workbook with stitches and techniques
  • Transferring and finishing hoops
  • Choosing colours
  • Working with beads

This class is suitable for beginners to the craft as well as participants of the previous “Introduction to Embroidery” workshops as it will cover new material and techniques.

Maximum of 13 students per class.

Whanganui artist Sian Rafferty works with thread to create pieces that capture all the colourful sides of nature at Fern and Thistle Co. Sian is most well known for her custom pet portraits created through a meticulous process called thread painting.
When not stitching Sian can most commonly be found in the kitchen trying to make fresh pasta from scratch (often badly), or on the couch watching another British crime show, probably trying hard not to stitch. 
Saturday 27th of April from 11am - 2pm

Classes are held in our studio in Newtown, Wellington. Unit 28, 369 Adelaide Road, next door to  Rich Coffee. Free parking on Adelaide Road.
