STA Social Groups

STA also has two groups who meet throughout the year and new members are always welcome to fill vacancies as they occur.  At both groups all skill levels are welcome.   Sessions provide the opportunity for participants to learn from others, work on their own individual work, as well as socialise with like-minded people.  Group members enjoy helping each other and discovering new and creative ways of producing amazing works of art.  Both groups work hard to enter pieces into the main exhibition each year and practice through self-paced challenges, entering smaller exhibitions and liaising with colleagues for feedback and inspiration.

Monday group meet at the South Shepparton Community House with two sessions:

10am-12pm and 12pm-2pm (bring your own lunch).  These classes suit beginners through to experienced artists who wish to brush up on their skills.  Wendy Cook is the tutor and is qualified to teach Art, Design and Embroidery.  Topics covered include stitching techniques, watercolour and acrylic on fabric and canvas and various other textile work.  To enquire about joining, costs and anything else contact Wendy on 0468361823 or email pepertre@me.com.

Thursday group Fibre and Thread is a group of STA members who meet at Judith Roberts’s studio to explore textile art. Hours are from 10.00 till 1.00, on the first and third Thursdays of the month.
