An experienced and published designer, Narda, will guide you through the design process during the classes.

This series of workshops is for those who have done a little embroidery before and would like to practice their skills. Using simple design tools you can create something that reflects your individuality.

It's perfect if you want to make decorative pieces for your home or friends. It is perfect for creating individual pieces that express your interests & personality.

This course runs over four one-hour classes, which will help you explore what you know and create your own piece from scratch. These classes are arranged by request at a mutually convenient time (day or evening).

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.
