Let Anna of Shiny Happy Art guide you through a happy, abstract painting on fabric then Lauren from Molly and Mama will teach you a selection of stitches to add to your original painting. 

Join us in the studio to create beautiful Abstract Stitch Art! This class is perfectly suited to beginners in both painting and hand sewing. 

We'll give you a fabric panel to fit a 40cm x 50cm frame to paint on and you can decide if that'll be for one large piece or several smaller projects. During class, Anna will provide professional paints and her expert tuition to help you select your colour palette, design your own abstract artwork for fabric and then paint your fabric panel. Then Lauren will teach you a range of simple stitch types and how use them to adorn your fabric artwork with embroidery floss. 

You’ll receive a sewing kit that includes an embroidery hoop, floss, needles and more. It will also include our Top Tips for fabric painting and hand stitching, and a list of our favourite supplies. And you'll get to take home your special kit so that you can keep on stitching. Instructions will also be provided so that you can transform your abstract stitch art into embroidery hoop wall art, a simple envelope cushion, or a tote bag.

You may also choose to use it as a back panel on a denim jacket, in a lamp shade or even frame it for your wall. The options are endless. 

We'll also whip up a healthy morning tea, so just BYO lunch (or pop up to Northpoint to get a little something) and we'll have everything else ready for you.
