The Heart String

28 October 2020 - 18 November 2020

Free – $10
Embroidery by Aoife Billings

A FREE weekly online workshop series lead by artist Aiofe Billings

Every Wednesday 28th of October and 4th , 11th and 18th of November from 5pm – 6.30pm on ZOOM

No matter your cause, artist Aoife Billings has the stitch for you. Join her in this beginner-friendly course of embroidery that will make the heartstrings sing.

Learn how to make an embroidery patch for yourself or a loved one over this four-week intensive. Alternatively, why not donate your patch to a front-line worker as a good luck charm? The recipient can iron or sew the patch into their clothing as a charm for love, support and safety.

Participants will receive a materials pack with the purchase of the $10 ticket (please note, this is now a click and collect option from the SAM shop only).

If you would like to source the materials yourself, please choose the free ticket option and see the material list below.

Materials needed:
-Small embroidery hoop (with screws to tighten)

-Two chenille needles between the sizes 15-21 (a medium sized needle with the eye big enough for embroidery thread)

-At least 4 different embroidery thread colours (DMC embroidery thread is best for beginner’s as it’s less likely to fray)

-30cm of white cotton fabric cut off the roll, not sheer or as thick as denim, something in between

-Iron on patch backing

Limited places available, bookings essential via ticket box below.
