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.

Mending and Upcycling Clothes for Beginners Course



Narda is just the best teacher, so patient and willing to go over things to help you understand. I had a very informative class with her learning about sewing and upcycling, and got to see some of her fantastic projects which has inspired me to do the same. An excellent kit is provided for this class as well. Highly recommend.

I recently attended an embroidery class with Narda Campbell. It was two private sessions via Zoom, as a refresher course to update my skills (and memory) to complete an unfinished project. I found Narda to be fantastic, a great teacher, very patient!, friendly, totally professional, an expert in her field, informative, and generous with her time and skills. I had doubts about doing this through Zoom, but it was better than expected and I would be happy to do more classes that way again.

what a great experience. Narda Campbell was such a comfortable easy tutor. Any nerves I may have thought about having were very quickly swept aside due to her 'real' personality.
