Heather opened her Studio East Village Art House, located in leafy Balmain East initially to continue teaching art to adults and school children after school and during school holidays. She had been teaching as an early childhood educator and decided on a change incorporating the best part of her day, teaching art.

Now, she has decided to extend the workshops on offer to adults as well, with a wealth of talent in textile art as well Art workshops. She extended her interest and knowledge when she and her family set up home in Tokyo for five years where she learnt ceramics, Satchiko, Boro embroidery and Sumie ( ink painting) and she makes her own ink from charcoal and gold leaf. Her studio is bright and welcoming located in the front of the family home.

My friend and I had a wonderful evening playing with clay. Heather is a warm, highly professional and generous teacher. There were plenty of options of what to make and space to explore our own creative style. Definitely good value for money and lots of fun. STRONGLY recommended

My friend and I booked a class with Heather on 12/12. From the moment we stepped in, we immediately felt at home. We sipped moscato and shared life stories with Heather while we waited for the last guest to arrive. It’s easy to see that Heather’s workshop/ store is more than just a space. The last guest has known Heather for many years and so while we were making our clay pieces, my friend and I felt part of the community through the stories they were sharing. It felt like turning up to your favourite aunt’s place to do something crafty and beautiful together while catching up on life. It was such a light hearted and fun experience; a real birthday treat for me!

I wouldn’t say I learned many technical skills, but I absolutely recommend Heather’s class if you’re up for a fun and relaxed afternoon/ evening of craft with friends (and friends-to-be). We did make some beautiful pieces that we are so proud of though. Heather even sent us off with a block of complimentary clay so we can continue dabbling in this art form! Can’t wait to get our pieces back. Thanks again for a wonderful afternoon of great fun and laughter, Heather!
