Textiles Workshops | Adelaide Central School of Art

For those looking to hone or extend their skills, check out Adelaide Central School of Art's semester one short course program here

Sera Waters will be presenting Embroidering Contemporary Art from May 2 - June 27. This course marries the learning of embroidery techniques with lectures which delve into the traditional histories and contemporary contexts of embroidery in art and the wider community. Students will learn a range of basic traditional embroidery skills, including those used in gold work, black work, crewel work and silk-shading, as well as beginning and finishing techniques. With the focus of embroidery in contemporary art, students will be encouraged to expand upon the skills learned  with alternative materials and in non-conventional ways. Cost $560

Sculptural Forms: an exploration of natural fibres by Sandy Elverd May 14 - June 4, will explore the potential of natural plant materials to create a series of small sculptural forms using a variety of techniques and materials. Basketry, string making, netting and random stitch are some of the areas to be explored. A range of resources will introduce participants  to fibre sculpture within Australian and a global context.  Cost: $390
