Big Swinging Ovaries are hitting Australia!

In this course, you will be guided through embroidery basics to help create your very own Big Swinging Ovaries Feminist memento, to take home at the end of the day. Step by step instructions will be provided, as well as all necessary materials, hoops, fabric, needles, pencils scissors and a selection of colourful embroidery floss. There will also be various Big Swinging Ovaries patterns available for you to choose from, as well as stencils to create a truly unique piece.

You don’t need to be a seasoned stitcher to take part in this workshop. What’s absolutely needed is an open mind to a very contemporary approach to a very old craft and a little patience since embroidery is a time-intensive art form. Even the fastest stitchers will likely not finish their piece during the workshop, but will be able to take home all the material and expertise needed to finish at home.

What you'll get

  • All materials to create your own unique piece of art
  • A hoop, thread and booklet to take home to complete your piece
  • A modern approach to an age old craft
  • A wickedly fun Sunday morning!

what to bring

  • Your own piece of clothing if you wish to embroider straight onto it (but other fabrics will be supplied)
  • Lots of enthusiasm and a little patience! 😉
