2023 Stumpwork Masterclass with Alison Cole

13th September 2022

You've seen the book, now is the chance to do the course. We have great pleasure in offering a unique opportunity to develop your stumpwork skills.


Guild members no longer need to go to embroidery conventions in the Eastern States or overseas to enjoy Alison’s fun filled and expert tuition. The Education Committee have worked hard with Alison to bring her to Perth to teach her Stumpwork masterclass in 2023.

This series of workshops will lead participants through both historical and contemporary techniques for Stumpwork embroidery.  Students will have the option of working a series of samplers or working directly onto their own embroidery design that will grow over the course of the lessons.
