ABSTRACT Embroidery online workshop with Donna Gordge

Friday 29 May 2020 and Friday 12 June 2020
2:30 pm – 4 pm

Cost: $60

Take part in the ‘fusion format’ workshop including a parcel of materials + online tuition with fabulous Donna Gordge.

In response to the current directives to stay at home, we’ve re-shaped our workshop offerings from the usual face-to- face facilitated workshops held at Fabrik to an equally lovely new ‘fusion format’.

The fusion format for our Abstract Embroidery workshop includes: a crafty care package posted to you + 2 x 1 1/2 hour online workshop sessions beautifully facilitated by Donna Gordge of Stitch Paint Burn studio.

In Online Session 1 on Friday 29th May -2:30 PM -4:00 PM: You’ll receive up-close stitch tuition and inspiration to get stitching and carry on at home creating your own abstract embroidery piece.

In Online Session 2 on Friday 12th June – 2:30 PM -4:00 PM: You’ll have a little time for any trouble shooting Q & A, find out how to finish off your works plus have a round of Show & Tell to see how everyone’s embroidery has emerged.

We are enjoying putting together the crafty care packages. Each one contains:

• a detailed instruction booklet prepared by Donna, filled with photos, stitching diagrams, hints and variations;

• a materials pack, with all the bits and pieces that you’ll need to complete this project carefully curated from a stash of vintage loveliness. Think felt and fabric pieces, a variety of embroidery floss, beads, needles and other treasures (sourced with thanks from the Adelaide Remakery). Plus we’ve included a brand new embroidery hoop for you as well;

• an invitation to the Zoom sessions, including all the details, step-by-step about how to join us online so that each session runs smoothly.

This workshop is suitable for anyone with a creative interest, regardless of age or previous stitching experience – it’s a perfect free-style embroidery adventure you can take from home.

Once registered, we’ll contact you via email (on the next business day) to offer you a choice of colour selection from the prepared material packs available. We’ll also ask you to share with us your postal address and we’ll get your crafty care pack in the post quick smart!

(We’ll do our best to be super-speedy to try and overcome any time constraints that may occur while Australia Post is in such high demand).

Cost of postage is included in the workshop fee.

Once your registration is complete Eventbrite will automatically generate an email sharing with you the Zoom login link and the password for each session. It will also automatically re-send this to you 48 hours prior, 2 hours prior, and 10 minutes before the event begins. (It’s super helpful like that!)

We can’t wait to stitch along with you all.
