Description

After warm-up paper collage and sketching exercises and a discussion about the student’s ideas and aims we will continue on to explore ideas with fabrics and threads. Students will learn 5 popular embroidery traditional stitches together with an exploration of ideas and process. The format of the finished pieces will vary depending upon the student’s approach. Options include a piece for framing, to appliqué onto clothing, to incorporate into a tote bag, to make into gift cards, pages for a stitch meditations book or any other applications that the students may consider.


This workshop will take 2 hours.

Generous bundles of beautiful fabrics will be supplied along with stabilisers, threads and needles.

Students are encouraged to also bring their own fabrics and threads if they feel these are elements they wish to include into their work. All other materials will be provided.


Morgan Higgins is an accredited Professional Member of Craft Victoria. The desire to construct her own fabric led Morgan to the process of Saori style weaving. This style of weaving, developed by the late Misao Jo, embodies a concept of not simply weaving cloth, but weaving your true self. 

Morgan incorporates recycled yarn, fabric and clothing into her pieces as a contribution to maximising resources. She applies her fabric to installations, wall pieces, soft furnishings and clothing. Her woven textiles, embroidery, drawing, photography and video are further explored in various formats including zines, artist books, limited edition prints and installation.

I attended the textiles, collage, and stitch workshop. It was fantastic. Our Teacher Morgan was lovely, helpful, and full of inspiring ideas. Would definately attend another class.
