Fibre Art : Stitch

Narda Campbell 

Narda has been creating ever since she was a small child.  It gives her great joy to see someone who thought they couldn’t create anything create something of meaning for themselves. 

With experience in enamelling, ceramics, mosaics, calligraphy, painting, drawing, spinning, felting, knitting and crochet she has run community groups for 12 years, been a jewellery designer for 33 years, taught at the International School of Colour & Design in Sydney and designed cross stitch designs for ‘Embroidery & Cross Stitch’ magazine for over 10 years.

Narda’s Christian faith influences everything she does & the way she teaches. She believes there is no such thing as a non-creative person – only someone who hasn’t discovered their medium.

Fibre Art : Stitch - am

Morning sessions will be focussed on embroidery (stitching) basics & how to use them in embellishing existing clothing (salvaging) or creating something new from scratch.  You will be given the tools you need to do this yourself at home:

  • Embroidery kit (hoop, needles, thimble, scissors and a variety of threads)

  • Hand dyed fabric in your choice of colour or natural linen

  • Instructions to take home

  • List of suppliers and websites to look at

  • Small notebook for journaling ideas

Fibre Arts is available in both the Morning (embroidery only) & Afternoon (dyeing, printing etc) Elective streams.  Choose just mornings or afternoons, or both!

Additional Fee: $30

Max & min numbers apply, make sure you indicate a second choice for morning elective when registering in case your first choice is unavailable
