A workshop using a simple design technique to develop an original artwork, to use as inspiration for the making process.

Over the 3 weeks we will help support this process based learning experience to develop creative options, using simple techniques to emerge with a stitched textile work… A Painting in Stitches.

Cindy and Elissa are homeschooling mums with a love of fibre arts and a passion for the handmade. They are inspired by freeform stitching and experimentation and want to share and encourage an enjoyment of the simple act of making.

Participants will need to be able to thread their own needle and do some basic stitches.

Kits will be provided. Parents are welcome to participate but will need to book in to join the class.

Cost: $48 for HEA members; $52 for non-members

All workshops will be held at Mid Mountains Neighbourhood Centre (MMNC) on Tuesdays from 10:30-11:30am. MMNC is a nut free venue.  All homeschooling families are welcome to meet for lunch afterwards, whether or not you are attending the workshops.  Living Learning activities are Home Education Association Inc. (HEA) Events.

Living Learning programs are pitched at a 5yrs and up age group as a loose guideline. This term we also have a program on offer for children working at High School level. Keep reading and scroll down to find details.

Please note it is an insurance requirement from HEA that parents are at the venue or provide written notice of their absence to the event organiser and have a designated “supervising carer” present for their children. When you are the “supervising carer” for another parent, please ensure you include the names of the children who are in your care when you sign the HEA sign on sheet.

Our workshops most often book out, so book in as soon as you can!
