Monthly and Bi -Monthly workshop & Visiting Tutors

 

New and exciting  bi-monthly and monthly workshops are run through out the year exploring different design quilts and varying techniques. As well there we have visiting guest teachers for a whole new experience.

 

Each workshop is designed to work through the quilts or projects one step at a time.

Little Bird Workshop

 

Sometimes we find little fabric ‘gems’ we put away for another day…..just sometimes we find the right project to take the scissors to them!

 

You will have fun making a beautiful piece of textile artwork to treasure.

 

For Caroline, art is expressed through the textures of fibre and fabrics. She use many techniques of free machine embroidery to create Australian landscapes, Flora and Fauna. Colour is the basis of Carolines designs which capture the Australian Outback, Reefs, Rainforests and Country Way of Life. Each Piece is a uniquely handcrafted work of art.

 

Carolyn is a returning tutor we all have so much fun in her workshops
