Hi! I am Gabo, a passionate maker keen to share knowledge. Since childhood, I’ve lived my life with pencil at hand and an uncontrollable imagination.

I studied architecture which opened my eyes to the universe of design and fed my curiosity for understanding the crafted world that surrounds us. In 2011 I had the opportunity to teach design fundamentals and illustration techniques, which allowed me to share the knowledge I gathered through my own experiences and guide people during their creative journeys.
In 2014 while living in Europe, I dedicated most of my time to exploring several fabrication mediums and collaborating with art shops, architecture studios and universities.

When I moved to Sydney, I started working in tertiary education, helping students bring their projects and ideas to life. This has given me the opportunity to organise and deliver workshops in many realms of fabrication, from digital fabrication, to traditional crafting techniques including leather working.

I believe that we are all makers, and the desire to materialise our dreams is part of our human nature. I want to help you obtain the skills you seek to make your next creation a reality.
