Blackwork is one of the most popular of the traditional counted thread techniques. This simple stitch can create so many intriguing and (seemingly) complex patterns! Susan Davis has developed this course and we know you will love it.

What is an Intermediate Subject?
An Intermediate subject is a series of classes designed to move you beyond the beginner stage. It develops your skills in a particular technique as well as your confidence in general. Different techniques are offered from year to year. The course leads you beyond the basics of a technique, building up a collection of stitch samples and knowledge pertaining to that particular technique. Most courses require the student to produce two small pieces and one major piece. A ‘major piece’ does not mean that the student has to produce a huge piece of work, but rather a piece of work that demonstrates that the student has a good grasp of the skills learned for the technique. Student work is assessed by the tutor, and a date for assessment is usually set for approximately six weeks after the last class of the course.
Each subject runs for six sessions, from 10.30am to 2.30 (including a 30 minute lunch break).
There will be homework after each session, and at the end you’ll hand in a small folder of notes and your finished works for assessment.
To enrol, students must demonstrate a knowledge of basic stitches, as well as some experience in the basics of the chosen technique.
If you are thinking of participating in an Intermediate subject, keep an eye out for any classes being offered that would add to your skill and knowledge. We try to timetable a basic/beginners class before an Intermediate subject is offered,
If you successfully complete three Intermediate subject within five years, and take part in the Intermediate Final Display, you will receive your Intermediate Certificate.
Or you can simply take individual subjects from time to time. Many members find these courses so valuable that they complete more than three courses, learning a wide variety of techniques.
Intermediate Classes cost $275. Members only.
