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.

Narda was easy to talk to, patient and I learned the basics that the class promised I would. The materials were provided and the atmosphere of her home was very relaxing.

Narda is very experienced and knowledgeable about all things related to crocheting and knitting and extremely patient! I've not had any success learning to crochet in the past but was able to crochet by the end of her class. My daughter attended the class and she learned a lot too. Narda provided a yummy and generous evening tea as well.

I loved my crocheting class today. The instruction matched the pace at which I could learn the stitches. I learnt lots of other related information. It was relaxing and the afternoon tea was delicious.

Tejal Bhagwate Mar 2022


Narda provided the yarn, the crotchet hook, some printouts for the beginners class. She taught the basic stitches and introduced the many different things that can be made. She showed some of her work which was inspiring. She also served her handmade delicious chocolate brownie and a cup of tea. I wish we had spent more time practising the stitches.

Riti Rahman Mar 2022


Narda is amazing! Not only is she great at teaching but it was an absolute delight to chat with her as she showed me the basics of crocheting. I had a great time and can’t recommend her classes enough!

Stacey Kerrigan Mar 2022


Had a fantastic time learning the basics of Crotchet with Narda. She is an very lovely, talented person who really makes you feel welcome, even if you're naturally socially awkward and shy you'll feel at ease. She gives and lot of helpful information , very patient teaching and provides good quality yarn and Crotchet to take home. Can't wait have my next class with her!

Robyn Moujally Feb 2022


Narda was fantastic. I really enjoyed the one on one session. I’ve previously tried to learn crochet using YouTube videos however wasn’t able to pick it up. It was so much easier having someone guide me and show me on my own hands where I was going wrong. I absolutely recommend a one on one with Narda. Thank you again Narda for having me in your home.

Amit Soni Feb 2022

Everything from the booking stage to to actual class, one on one tuition, delicious cake and freshly brewed tea. Narda is just awesome.

Christine Volkmar-Prib Jun 2021


I loved my morning at Narda's! What a lovely person she is, with so much knowledge, creativity and patience! I even started my own crocheting project on the day (something I thought I may not achieve that fast). I loved her homemade cake with berries and beautiful coffee! I was given wool, a crocheting hook and a lovely notebook. I'll be back for more lessons! Thank you very much, Narda! X

Great teacher, very knowledgeable and made the class enjoyable. All materials were supplied including a yummy brownie with tea. Great beginners class, teacher was very patient. Definitely recommend the class. A useful skill to learn which is excellent for stress reduction.

Susan Billyard May 2021


A most enjoyable morning spent learning crochet with Narda. She was very friendly, supportive and patient as I started my journey in learning this craft. And I was also treated to delicious cups of tea and freshly made brownie. I loved Narda’s cosy studio and seeing all the inspiration pieces she showed me of her own art. I left with some lovely yarn and instructions on how to continue on and look forward to becoming a lot more
proficient, knowing Narda is there to help if I need her

This was a great beginner class. I started with no experience and came out able to do different stitches and have already made good progress on my 1st creation. Narda was patient & happy to show things a few times until I could manage it

Kat Hamilton Apr 2021


Great afternoon. After a 20year absence from crocheting I was getting frustrated with my mistakes, Narda really helped me understand and correct the errors I was making.
The chocolate cake was a delicious bonus.

Narda was enthusiastic teacher, had many past projects to show for inspiration. The two balls of wool provide were beautiful colours and so soft. A good introduction to crochet, with good instruction sheets to take home to continue on with the crocheting journey.
