2024 Design Online with Barbara Mullan

This course is part of the Education program for the Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia Inc. Barbara Mullan is your tutor and will be in monthly contact with you during this course ( except July 2024 when she will be taking a textile group to the Top End of Australia including the Tiwi Islands).

The course runs completely online over the course of the year and consists of six modules which have been designed to enable students to design their own embroidery. They begin with a problem such as ‘How do I create a design for the embroidery on a …….?’. The course sets out to help solve that problem, by getting the students to explore the visual components of a design which are line, shape, texture and colour, and how to incorporate these into a composition which has balance and is pleasing to the student. The final outcome will be a completely original design created by the student.

Places in this course are limited to 6 and enrollments close Friday 23rd February 2024. When your application is received, you will receive a requirements list.
