Illustrative Embroidery Workshop (Texture + Pattern) with Irem Yazici

  • The Windsor Workshop Level 1, 115 Chapel Street Windsor, VIC, 3181 Australia (map)

She’s back! If magical underwater fishing scenes with dancing, crescent-moon crowned mermaids appeals / galaxies far far away or perhaps life size kitty cats holding hands with young girls whilst dancing through the tulips is floating your whimsical sail boat / or even a night sequence of swans and turquoise blue frogs frolicking under the stars is more your dream, then please welcome back Irem Yazici from Eskisehir, Turkey.  

Irem Yazici is a self taught fibre artist. She works as a full time artist in her home studio dividing her practice between hand embroidered accessories and creating one of a kind artworks. Inspired by the whimsical things and surrealism, her work is a combination of her illustration and embroidery practices where she explores through colour and texture.

Last year, Irem taught us a Hoop Art Embroidery and Embroidered Mini Pin Workshop and believe us when we say, they were incredible! You don’t want to miss this opportunity with Irem.

Over a fun filled, champagne sipping afternoon you will learn…

  • fundamentals of embroidery i.e. how to choose appropriate fabric / threads 

  • embroidery techniques including everything from needle painting through to french knots 

  • how to apply these techniques in a mindful way

  • how to think outside of the more traditional embroidery boundaries by learning how to merge different fiber art materials i.e.  beads / pom poms / sequins / fabric scraps 

  • how to create your own patterns and textures whilst stitching and embellishing your own ‘space / galaxy’ illustration

  • no experience required - suitable for all stitching / embroidery levels
