Enjoy learning three different textile and fibre techniques while you create three beautiful

brooches!

 

Each day we will cover a new set of techniques, so you will have a whole new creative skill-set by the end of the course. All techniques covered can be used to create many other items when you get back home — thus widening your creative horizons.

 

By the end of the course your Triple Treat of Brooches will be ready to wear!

Day 1: Make a coiled brooch using figure-8 coiled basketry techniques, plus coloured yarns and plain core cord

Day 2: Make a brooch using (commercially made) thick wool felt, with steam-set shibori fabrics as embellishments, plus simple embroidery and hand-stitching

Day 3: Make an exotic textile brooch using rug hooking techniques, plus some simple

stitching.

Comprehensive printed and bound notes (with colour pictures and diagrams where appropriate)

are provided for each participant at $5 each.

Your tutor will have a wide range of additional supplies for students to purchase during the course, as well as various tools and equipment to share.
