Junior Embroiderers (JEMS)

This group caters for school children aged 8 years and over. Students learn the basics of embroidery by completing small projects designed for their age group. Experienced embroiderers provide individualised guidance.

Guidelines for JEMS sessions

  • Collecting & Dropping off Students: For security reasons, parents/guardians are required to deliver to and collect Junior Embroiderers from the Gallery door. The Guild car park is available for use (enter from Hughes Street).
  • Our tutors are all volunteers, so it’s appreciated if you can be on time to collect students at the end of each session.
  • Parent/Guardian Attendance: To minimise distractions, we respectfully request that parents/guardians do not remain during the class session, except for those who are recognised volunteer tutors.
  • Parents of new students are invited to stay for 2 or 3 sessions to enable a smooth transition for their child.
    Please bring to each session: An A4 folder with plastic sleeves for project instructions, workbox, and embroidery scissors.
