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 art form.

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

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

Narda is not only an amazing artist but a great teacher. The Embroidery for Absolute beginners was well paced and Narda explained and demonstrated the 5 basic stitches needed to start your own creation. Thank you Narda for introducing me to the fascinating world of colour, thread and material. Seeing your work was an inspiration! The embroidery kit you provided will definitely be put to good use. PS the tea break with chocolate fudge brownie with berries and cream - yum!

I absolutely loved my beginner’s embroidery class with Narda today!

Her space will relax and inspire you creatively whilst leaning the basic stitches of embroidery.

Narda is extremely patient with beginners, and has a wealth of knowledge to share. The personalised kit is such a great touch as you get to practise at home.

I would highly recommend Narda’s class for anyone interested in the world of embroidery! She is a true artist.

Value for money and a relaxed atmosphere - made for a perfect experience with Narda today. She is such a talented lady who took the time to teach me new skills. Narda was patient and extremely good and demonstrating the steps I needed to perform the stitches being taught. I would love to do other courses with her and hope to soon. The one on one lesson was perfect for me. The kit she provided was wonderful and she certainly didn't skimp of this.
Highly recommend this to others.
