A fibre artist, designer, teacher, and history nut, I am fascinated by all forms of colour and pattern in daily life as an expression of culture and identity.

I love teaching and sharing what I know, helping people to stretch their skills, create new experiences & explore their own creativity.

I firmly believe there is no such thing as a non-creative person.
Everyone has the potential to be creative.
It could be in cooking, gardening, interior design, writing or as in my case - FIBRE arts.

As a teacher with 30 years experience, I get a real buzz when a student who hasn't tried a specific craft before - not only masters it, but becomes excited by the ways they can use their new skill.

I started in Jewellery design when I was in my early 20's, then discovered that all the things I love to do (design, dye, draw, felt, paint, etc) could be used in the practice of 'Hand or Surface Embroidery'.

I taught the 'Foundation course' in Colour & Design at the International School of Colour & Design.

I am a published textile designer & also run week-long textile experiences in Tasmania every January.
I have exhibited many of my pieces in a variety of spaces & had one piece auctioned off to raise money for the Embroiderers Guild of NSW.

My influences come from various parts of history both ancient and modern, the natural world (especially birds & fish) & the written word.
I love to read.
I collect folktales & poetry.
These interests often show up in my work - in quotes or images inspired by what I've read.

I bring all of these experiences & interests to my teaching of Hand Embroidery & encourage students to explore the potential of this ancient art form.

The same can be said of my other design practices - wirework, up-cycling clothing & free form crochet + knitting.
I also teach spinning - I dye & spin my own yarn.

Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

I had a fantastic lesson with Narda, she is very creative and knowledgeable. The studio is a really nice place to crochet in. Narda was a great teacher and host afternoon tea was provided and was very yummy. The materials provided were excellent quality and were given to me to take home. I highly recommend having a lesson and I produced the neatest granny square I have done so far.Now considering other courses with Narda has she teaches several crafts.

Narda is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and engaging and absolutely knows her craft. The materials provided are of excellent quality and the take home instructions for refreshers, and for future projects, are great. Gorgeous venue, delicious afternoon tea and a fun learning experience. Excellent value for money.

I enjoyed meeting Narda and learning from her very much. She was very welcoming and made me feel at ease. She has a wealth of knowledge about yarn, design, knitting and crochet that she gladly shared with me. I learnt how to crochet a shawl and a hat and how to use basic shapes to create beautiful things to wear. I’m excited to learn more! Thank you Narda.

Had an awesome first time experience with Narda. No materials were needed and I had no experience whatsoever.
They way she taught me was simple and to the point with a lot of patience.
Venue was very nice.
I'll be going back for more most definitely.
