Beginners & Advanced Embroidery/Tapestry

    LOCATION: Mernda Village CAC Community Centre, 70 Mernda Village Drive, Mernda MEETING ROOM
    DESCRIPTION: This is a part teaching – part participants working on own projects. The tutor will demonstrate to beginners how to start their work and what stitches to use. With the tapestry you can purchase a tapestry kit (from Kmart, Lincraft etc.) preferably with a stencilled design, needle and wool included in the kit. The cost is usually under $15. For the embroidery, a kit can also be purchased with a stencilled design, hoop, needle and threads included in the kit. Maybe do not get a counted cross-stitch kit as this is a more advanced project. Otherwise, participants can bring their own work to do in class and share their experience – or even purchase blank tapestry canvas or embroidery material, buy coloured wool for tapestry and coloured threads for embroidery and can attempt to design and draw their own pattern to complete.
