Course Outline
This course is intended as a creative journey through canvas embroidery techniques, exploring stitches, experimenting with colour & threads, layering of colour & stitch, and incorporating some mixed media techniques and applied media.

You will be encouraged to study contemporary artists and art styles as a tool to developing your own design ideas. Stitch samples, research ideas & drawings are to be submitted as part of your module assessment.

The course consists of 4 modules.

Each module should be returned to the Guild for assessment by the facilitator.  It is then returned to you with comments and suggestions to enable you to build up a valuable reference tool for further development of your embroidery & design skills.

Enrolments
This course is open to Guild members only.  Enrolled students must maintain financial membership of the Guild for the entire duration of the course.
