For some people, possession is not enough, the thrill comes with the creation. If you've ever wondered how to make a wallet or a bag or indigo dye, then these workshops are just the ticket.
Conducted in my studio at Goonellabah (Lismore) with small class sizes, these events are social and informative. To get the basics down we focus on a specific project for each workshop. All tools and dyes are supplied. All you need to bring is an apron.
If you have a group of friends and would like to build a workshop around your dates and project preferences, please email me and we can schedule a time and project to suit. Great idea for a baby or bridal shower. If a date listed doesn't suit, please email me and I'll place you on the waiting list for the next round of workshops.

Workshop policies - bookings and cancellations terms and conditions
Class sizes are small to ensure appropriate levels of attention. Early bookings recommended to ensure you get a place. Your payment confirms your place in the workshop. To go ahead a class needs a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 participants. Should you book a date and the minimum number not be reached I will be in touch with as much notice as possible (normally 7 days) to select another mutually agreeable date for you. Places must be booked and paid 7 days out. I understand stuff happens (yes I have kids) and I endeavor to be as accommodating/understanding as possible. Refunds are available under certain circumstances - at the discretion of the workshop facilitator.
