Smocking is an easy and affordable way to add texture, form and personality to any sewing project or textile art piece. During this eight week course, students will work alongside their instructor to create a smocked cube that displays six different hand stitched patterns in the form of a fun and soft keepsake. This beginner friendly smocking course will allow students to dip their toes into the vast world of fabric manipulation and walk away with their own handmade soft sculpture! The course demonstrations will go over the gridding of fabric and the laying out of patterns, the differing effects of spacing and stitching when applied to fabric and how to later incorporate these techniques into a final piece.

Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Hannah Proctor is a young aspiring artist and recent graduate of the NSCAD University Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing program. Having always been intrigued and influenced by the arts, Hannah spent the vast majority of her formative years exploring different mediums and creating work with the guidance of her mother. She began her post-secondary journey as an interdisciplinary sculpture student but after one holloware class, she quickly took to jewellery and began creating sculptural adornment. The artist finds inspiration in the intricacies of the natural world and the cold materiality of machinery both past and present, these fascinations work in tandem with Hannah’s knack for material exploration as she utilises and combines different materials to create complex pieces that push the bounds of what is considered jewellery.
