Owlfred with Hazel Blomkamp from South Africa
2, 4 or 6 Day Workshop. Saturday 1st July-Sunday 2nd July and Monday 3rd July - Friday 7th July as Continuance.
Students can book in for a 2, 4 or 6 day workshop to work on Owlfred with Hazel. If you would like to do this workshop for 4 or 6 days please book into these workshops also as continuance. Students can only commence this workshop in the first 2 days.
Owlfred is an unconventional take on a common bird of prey inspired by a painting of an owl made of metal spare parts and a clock face tummy seen in an art gallery window. Using space-dyed Chameleon threads, DMC cottons and metallics, Miyuki beads and Czechoslovakian flat back crystals, this project uses a huge variety of stitches as under:
Bead embroidery: 4 techniques
Crewel embroidery: 29 stitches
Needle Lace embroidery: 3 techniques
Needle Weaving: 5 patterns
Measuring 360 x 200 mm, it is a large but interesting and fun project that will keep you busy for a while. Once finished and framed it will deserve pride of place on any wall.
Skill level: This project is not for beginners but stitchers with an intermediate to advanced knowledge of embroidery will not only enjoy the project, but are likely to add to their stitch and techniques repertoire when doing the workshop.
Kit cost: $168.30
