In order to make the most of your experience, the following equipment and set up will be needed to join a class:
All of the live events require internet access. If you do not have access, you can consider joining one of our streamable online classes, which can be watched at your own pace.
We are pleased to offer timetables suitable for European and American time zones. We regret that we cannot offer all of the classes at a time appropriate to those in Aus/NZ timezones due to the difficulty presented the time difference.
Please follow the steps outlined on the How to Book page. From there you can access our online booking & payment form.
What do the various ticket prices include?
Inclusions and exclusions for all ticket types are listed on the How To Book page.
Will I receive my choice of classes?
Classes are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Once you have submitted your form and made your payment, you will receive an immediate notification of your booking. We will then send you a summary of your classes a few days later.
What is the capacity of each class?
We will accept up to 30 students in each class.
Class fees are charged per participant and kits are sold in advance only to those who have booked on the class.
During the workshop you will be connected via Zoom to your tutor for all of the teaching. They will demonstrate techniques and show you how to create their beautiful designs. You will be able to ask questions as you go, as well as get to know your fellow embroiderers. Sessions will be 2 hours long and between sessions you will have an opportunity to take a break and/or progress your work before the next session.
All the Zoom workshops will be recorded and offered to those booked on to the specific class as a back up for anything they have missed or would like to go over. These recordings will be accessible for a month after the original event (or longer if needed)
Alternatively, our pre-recorded courses offer a self-paced learning experience, where you will have the chance to learn by following videos created exclusively for the Crewel Work Company. We currently offer courses taught by the following tutors: Phillipa Turnbull, Zina Kazban, Mandy Ewing, Sarah Thursfield, Hazel Blomkamp and Tanya Bentham. Full details can be found on our Online Courses page.
Both timetables are split into 2 daily sessions of 2 hours (total of 4 hours per class per day).
During the class the tutors will introduce each technique and demonstrate the design before allowing you to have a go. You will have a chance to follow along and ask questions as you stitch.
Small changes to the timetable reflect demand for classes as well as availability of tutors. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you are able to find something else that inspires you in the programme!
This event will offer workshops for all levels of experience from complete beginner to the very advanced. Furthermore, class sizes are relatively small so each student will receive ample time with their tutor. Please check each tutor page for their designs and the specific guidance for the skill level required for each workshop.
We will accept 30 students in each of the live classes (in order to keep the live classes small and intimate and so that the tutor can provide ample one-on-one attention).
All workshops will be online.
Full details of all the activities for the May event can be found on the May 2023 Special Events pages.
