Festival Workshops 2017

Did your grandmother or mother ever wear an Apron that they had embroidery on it? Do you still have this Apron as a treasured memory of their stitching?

This year at the Ballarat Apron festival we are giving you the opportunity to learn how to create your own family heirloom.

Catherine Thomas, a textile creator and designer from Ballarat will be holding basic beginner embroidery classes at the festival so you can embroider a motif onto an apron you can wear.
