Brunswick Brown Owls learn about EMBROIDERY from Rebecca

The delightful Rebecca, who completed a three-year apprenticeship in embroidery in London, will be taking us through an informal workshop on Wednesday 11th April at 7pm at the Sporting Club, Weston St, Brunswick, Victoria.


You can learn more about Rebecca’s work, and see some amazing examples in her gallery at Rebecca’s website and her Facebook page RalRayEmbroidery. You can even go to her shop on Etsy! Like her! Follow her! Buy her stuff!

You will need:

1. An existing embroidery project or an idea for one, or just some materials

2. Fabric

3. embroidery floss

4. embroidery needle

5. embroidery hoop

6. scissors

7. pencil & paper


Rebecca took art, textiles and ceramics at school, and even went on to get a ceramics degree from Loughborough University, but after all of that, textiles was still her strongest passion. She was given a chance to develop her skills in hand embroidery in 2005 when she was one of the lucky seven people to be accepted that year onto the apprenticeship at the Royal School of Needlework, and since then has never looked back! She has been lucky enough to work with the Royal School of Needlework, in their commercial studio taking on new commissions as well as conservation and restoration of older works. Through them she has played a part in some larger projects such as the regeneration at Dover Castle, working on hangings for the Henry II exhibition. Amaze!

If you’re not into embroidery then that is fine too, just bring your own project and carry on with that, there is no pressure to do what else is happening in the fine Ladies Lounge…

Welcome to the Brunswick Brown Owls! If you can’t make it, we’ll pop up photos of the evening on our Brunswick Brown Owls Facebook page so you can join in the fun too. We have OVER 100 members, and you can be a part of our crafty community too! Come along and learn some new skills with us!

The Sporting Club still has delicious tapas and they discounted cocktails! Bonza! What a night! Bring your friends!
