Learn the art of contemporary needlepoint at the KPC Yarn @kpcyarn pop-up in Paddington, Sydney. I am teaching two three-hour workshops.

Explore the half cross stitch traditionally used in needlepoint tapestry, sew on an urban inspired painted tapestry canvas and use a stencil to extend your image with key black lines. Seeking movement, layering and texture we will work with the single and double cross stitch and allow the painted background to reveal itself.

This work shop will provide you with the skills and inspiration to access your creativity. Needlepoint tapestry is the perfect combination of art meets craft and you’ll find the rhythmic flow of sewing is restorative, soothing and uplifting.

All equipment is provided; KPC Yarn, A painted 5ct tapestry canvas, An embroidery needle, Stencils, Black markers and a Tapestry tote bag

There are limited spaces so hurry.
For bookings and more details go to kpcyarn.bigcartel.com or follow the link above.

SONY DSCNiki McDonald lives in Sydney, Australia. Her contemporary needlepoint tapestries explore the urban landscape and experience. ‘Faces, spaces and attitudes,’ are all themes in work which often depict strong women against a colourful background that includes cultural references to today’s society.
