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.

The class was more than great it was awesome. I started out clunky and all fingers contorted in wiered ways.
Guess what i did it. I found my style.
Tickled Pink
Carried on crocheting most on the evening, i found it really relaxing, made some mistakes but who cares.
I was thinking prior to this class that i have trouble learning new skills due to cognitive challenges.
But wow it did it i love it and i want to do more. Make a cap.
Just do it.

Narda was a relaxed teacher who instilled you with confidence. Also all supporting material was first rate. I enjoyed the class and looking forward to the next one on the making of hearts.
