BA (hons) in Textile Design. Mixed media artist and lover of all things creative.

Sydney Creative was launched in 2019 by Textile Designer Sophie Parry.

Creativity is, and always has been, the driving force in Sophie's life. From an early age she would always swap the dolls and toys for a pen and notepad. She never minded being left to her own devices while her parents needed to go shopping. With a colouring-in book to hand Sophie happily sat quietly either scribbling away or patiently filling in each tiny hole in the fabric of her red tights – the latter much to their frustration.

Sophie's creativity and passion for art led to an interest in fabrics, sewing and textiles. It was at university where Sophie found her feet in the textiles profession, developing the skills and techniques that would guide her on her own journey in textile design. During this time, Sophie won several awards for her textile work and was chosen to exhibit her final third year project at the prestigious New Designers exhibition in London.

Upon graduating, Sophie left her hometown in Wales to experience different cultures around the world. She settled in Sydney and decided to launch her Handmade Baby Boutique brand Scribble & Sew. In 2018 Sophie introduced sewing workshops through Scribble & Sew and later re-branded as Sydney Creative.

Sydney Creative currently offer unique and flexible sewing workshops for busy Sydneysiders. Sophie understands that not everyone has a full day to spend learning how to sew, which is why she launched the Introduction To Sewing workshop. In the future, Sophie plans to offer more creative workshops such as painting, punch needling and social sewing.

Sophie was very easy going and patient. I really loved the class and got a lot of new information to start me on my sewing journey. Thanks Sophie!

Sophie was a great teacher! She explained things thoroughly and I never felt rushed. She didn't over complicate things and by the end of it, I felt a lot more confident using my sewing machine. I was impressed by my finished cushion and was surprised I was able to create something so good in such a short period of time.
