I love sharing my passion for canvaswork embroidery and sewing. I have been teaching both children and adults in various locations in Western Australia, Victoria and Adelaide for the past five years. It continues to be an absolute joy and privilege for me to share my knowled’ge and enthusiasm for this wonderful area of hand embroidery. It is also lovely to meet so many new sewing friends along the way. I’m not sure there is a better job in the world than this one 🙂
I am currently teaching a regular class at the Tresillian Arts Centre in Nedlands, Western Australia. My class for adults, Creative Embroidery in Colour, runs over eight weeks during term time for three hours every Friday morning. Begin with a simple introductory project and then explore wonderful combinations of colour, pattern, thread and embellishments on projects of your own choice. You can find out more information by clicking here.
I also teach regularly for the Embroiderer’s Guild of Western Australia, the Embroiderers Guild Victoria, and private craft groups in a variety of locations around Australia. You can find a brief summary of my forthcoming engagements below as well as links to the relevant contact for bookings if that is available.

My classes for children run in the school holidays at Tresillian Arts Centre. All classes are project based and run over one or two days for either 2.5 or 3 hours on each day. The classes introduce your child to a range of simple hand sewing skills whilst encouraging them to make their own creative choices with regard to colour, fabric, stitch, etc. You can find out about classes for the upcoming school holidays by clicking here.
