Crochet is great for stress, boredom and anxiety. All you need is a hook, yarn and know-how.
I can supply you with all three!

In this workshop, you will learn how to crochet and I will show you how to start a mobius scarf (infinity). We'll go through all of the basic crochet stitches and I'll be there to answer any questions you have along the way.

Once you know how to make a scarf - the possibilities are limitless.

I also have samples I can show you during the lesson.

Over 25 years experience in teaching & creating.

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 is a wonderful teacher and hostess. Our class was in her cozy home which was easy to get to by public transport. She had everything we needed for the class and I enjoyed trying on some of the crocheted jackets and hats that she had made, even dyeing the yarn herself. Narda is a woman of many talents and experiences. I finished the class with a pathetic example of crocheting, however I undid it on the train home and started again with Narda instruction in my head I was able to churn out a beautiful piece of crochet before the end of my 2 hour journey. Hoping to do another class with Narda in the not too distant future.

Narda is a very friendly teacher. I enjoyed my first crochet experience. I went with a lot of anxiety because I was not sure if I could do it but she was very supportive and made things easy.

This class was amazing! Narda was warm and patient and clearly explained every step along the way. She is very knowledgeable in all forms of crochet and knitting, and I learnt so much. She also makes delicious cake! I feel much more confident crocheting myself now and am very glad I took this class. It is definitely worth it, and time flies by. This is a perfect gift for someone starting or wanting to start crocheting.

The most amazing lesson! Narda was relaxed, reassuring and patient. Her place was warm & friendly and everything was provided. Her hospitality was also incredible. A great experience.

Caroline Coleman Mar 2023


Narda is such a good teacher. One on one , which was so helpful with my hearing impairment. Learn and saw so many things to inspire me to really get into crocheting. Loved it !

Jodie Payne Mar 2023


This was my first Class Bento experience. Narda was very accomodating as I had to reschedule my class booking 3 or 4 times due to a family matter. Her home was warm and inviting with a beautiful pet Bree. I was provided with all materials required and she even went through my things that I had brought with me to make sure they were suitable for crocheting. I had done a course before and didn't retain knowledge or feel comfortable. Yesterday I learn't a few basic things which I now know can make many many things. Narda is very knowledgable with all things wool which felt like I was in expert hands. Practice and position are 2 things I came away with and be Fearless! I hope to continue not only my crochet journey but other crafts too. I would throughly recommend a class with Narda

Narda was very patient with me and explained the steps thoroughly. It took me awhile to get into the groove but I know it’s just practice now. Narda has done some amazing crochet works over the years and I enjoyed her workshop.

Great class, and Narda is a highly proficient and lovely teacher. Learning a skill like crochet in person makes a huge difference - it is much easier to learn face to face! I can highly recommend this course, and Narda as a teacher.

Rachel Kornhaber Jul 2022


Simply fantastic! If I could give more than 5 stars I would.

Narda has given me a task to complete and we will reconvene and consolidate my learning in the next session.

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


Aanya throughly enjoyed the class , and Narda 's company .She told me Narda makes the best cakes.Thank you for lovely experience.Would look forward to more such experiences.

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

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.
