2024 Geelong Fibre Forum - Geelong Grammar, Vic

29th Sept- 5th Oct


5 day Zap Zing Zowie Masterclass workshop. 

5 days of learning all my folded fabric techniques and more. We'll cover making the folded fabric circle blocks in several ways, layering for different effects, explore creative ideas for projects, big stitch hand quilting, improv piecing and more. This workshop will be a wonderful way to deep dive into making a quilt or project inspired by my quilts. 

Class numbers are limited to 15 participants. 


Geelong Fibre Forum is set in the beautiful grounds of Geelong Grammar, ( Geelong, Vic). Its so wonderful to live, think and breathe creativity for 5 wonderful days. Delicious meals are provided and there are evening activities ( or more sewing if you like ), friendly, like-minded people, and inspiration all round. 

I'm describing this from personal experience - I attended as a student in 2023 and loved every minute! I'm very honoured to be returning to teach, but even if I wasn't I'd be going back again as a student in the following years, just to be there amongst all the inspiration and camaraderie of being with creative folks.

Over 2 weekends of May 18/19  &  May 25/26. 


"Craft Lab demonstration and exhibition is a signature event of the Ballarat’s Heritage Festival. This is a celebration of traditional artisanal skills coupled with contemporary treatment. It is the moment where the functional becomes beautiful. 17 selected practitioners are invited to share their knowledge, expertise and techniques with thousands of members of the public over four full days. 


The practitioners are hugely varied – from ceramicists, jewellers, upholsterers to spinners, shoemakers to metalworkers, wild weavers to eco-dyers. All practitioners are chosen for their depth of knowledge as well as their commitment to applying traditional techniques to contemporary practice. Craft Lab is seeking to maintain old skills but also exploring how these can be applied in new ways."

2025 - Moroccon Textile Tour!

Let's go to Morocco!! Imagine walking through colourful markets, learn how traditional rugs are made, Moroccan embroidery, dying with madder, sunrise over the Sahara, crafts markets, costume museums, beautiful guest houses and more!! 

The focus is on experiencing Moroccan places, sights and crafts, but I'll have a sewing project for you to work on as we travel. It won't require lots of things to bring and there will be ways to incorporate treasures and inspiration that we find along the way. I'm really excited about what I have planned. 

The tour is hosted by Amazigh Cultural Tours who conduct several tours a year so they are up to date and always looking out to create the best experiences they can. The tour is limited to a maximum of 12 people. Husbands are most welcome too, Mr Daisy will be there with bells on! 


I've chosen the dates of 3rd-17th May, 2025 because it's just after Pour L'amour du Fil Quilt Show, Nantes, France. Perfect to plan a trip to do both.
