Freehand Machine Embroidery Workshop

Sat 25 June at 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

An upcoming workshop on 25 June is machine embroidery. Participants are asked to bring their own machine and materials. Their tutor Mary, will ensure that their machine is working correctly, then provide instruction on how to create sewn patterns using freehand machine stitching. “I did this workshop last year and learned so much” says a returning participant. “I was able to create sewn gum leaves, which I then cut out and added to a hat. I had never done freehand sewing, but it is much more relaxing than making structured garments.” Participants can contact Mary on 0408 788 796 or email to register their interest and to get more details.

Evans Arts Council has been in operation in the Bathurst region for over 40 years. With this has come change, but it also brought the opportunity for new members to bring their skills and knowledge to the organisation.
Covid 19 forced the Arts Council to seek other venues for workshops, however, with their move back to their former home at the old Evans Shire Council building in Kelso, workshops are back in full swing. “We have a range of workshops running 6 days a week” reported the President, Carol Dobson. “Current workshops on offer range from watercolours, acrylic and oil painting, but we also offer drawing, lino printing, macramé, patchwork and felting. We are also currently looking at options to run youth art and craft workshops for teens during school holidays”.
