Goldfinch Bird Collage Workshop by April Sproule

Workshop Dates: Thursdays, March 17 and 24, 2022
Time: 9:00am - 12:00  pm both days
Place: Virtual Live Workshop with Zoom 

Fee: $69.00, All Skill Levels Are Welcome!

  In my all time favorite workshop, students will learn step-by step how my original bird designs are made. Raw edge applique adds to the beauty and the ease of stitching of these pieces. I will guide students through the process to create these magical creatures.

You Will Learn:

  • Hand embroidery and applique techniques
  • Background composition options
  • Construction of the bird and the stitching
  • Finishing techniques for preserving and displaying your work
  • A Supply List will be emailed to everyone once the class is filled, so make sure you add your correct email address at checkout.
  • The Student Handouts will be sent to you a week before the start of the workshop. 
About Zoom: If you haven't taken a Zoom class before and you are a little nervous about doing so, I would be happy to do a little complimentary test run beforehand to help you out. Just contact me to set up a time. Contact

Cancellation Policy: Workshop cancellations are not accepted, and workshops are non-transferrable.

Hand stitched Goldfinch in progress by April Sproule.
Almost every piece I make goes through what I call the Ugly Duckling Phase. It's that point where you don't much like what you are doing and you are in danger of setting your piece aside and giving up. I will show you how to work through that!
