I have developed a portfolio of project-based and technique-driven patchwork and quilting classes for teaching at shops or private venues in the greater Sydney metropolitan area and beyond. My focus is on striking designs and the effective use of colour so as to promote fun and encourage the creative confidence of my students.

I particularly enjoy the energy and enthusiasm of retreat and symposium-style gatherings.  Past assignments include the Australasian Quilt Convention (2009, 2010 and 2013), Quilt Encounter (2010 and 2012),  AQS Quilt Week Paducah (2013), European Patchwork Meeting (2014) and Quilt Symposium Manawatu (2015).

Here is an overview of some of the classes available.

The workshops are suitable for all levels and are generally structured as one-day (six hour) classes. Some can be extended to two-day classes. Have a look at my schedule of forthcoming workshops and presentations.
