Workshops

I AM AVAILABLE FOR WORKSHOPS ALL OVER AUSTRALIA and worldwide.

I cater workshops to the needs of the participants from Teachers, Craft persons and Professionals. My workshops explore a variety of Fabric Manipulation techniques, with or without sewing machines. Many of my workshops focus on upcycling and sustainability.

Adventurous approaches to surface quality, which stimulates creative thinking amongst students. These practical activities link to the design elements and help students familiarize themselves with the elements. Explore the use of Nappy Liners and Vliseofix to create unique textures incorporating fibers, paper and fabric. Each participate will leave with a sample booklet containing techniques and instructions for each method, giving participates the opportunity to reflect. These methods allow success for all students as they are simple methods but yield high results, they can be extended on and develop as much as individuals allow them. They open the door from home economics to crossing over into subject areas such as Arts and Technology.


Melbourne June 2013

I facilitated a 2 hours workshop for the Victorian Home Economics Institute of Australia conference. Participants created a sample booklet to use as samples in the classroom.
