Your teacher, Narda Campbell Designs is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

See additional precautions taken by your teacher   

I will be limiting the numbers in each class to just one booking per class - to minimise risk to both participants & myself.

Everything that is used is clean & wiped using govt guidelines.

Extend your embroidery skills at these ongoing classes for those who have done my Hand Embroidery for Beginners course or equivalent and would like to practice their skills.

Learn how to use simple design tools to create something unique and express yourself using these ancient skills.

These short workshops will allow you to brush up on the stitches you have learned (either in the Hand Embroidery for Beginners or equivalent) and extend your skills.

Narda's design library and design tools are available for your use during the class.

You will receive guidance on a project or idea you might like to develop.

These classes are done by request and a mutual time will be arranged. Classes can be during the day or evening, and they can be a single workshop or ongoing sessions.

Each participant will be given design ideas plus written design development instructions.

You will also receive a design journal to use immediately.

At the end of the embroidery class, you will have built on your skills and have a good start on a design project.

So, get in touch to arrange a date.

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 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.
