Sophie Standing well known Textile Artist from Kenya came in March and taught this fantastic Kookaburra Textile collage workshop to ladies in Urunga NSW...
This is the second time Sophie has visited to teach her wonderful workshops here for me in Urunga NSW as part of a co-hosting with Michelle Pearson in Perth at Handcrafters House WA and Tracy Zinn at Heights Sewing Centre in Werribee VIC. The results of this workshop are so stunning each time we saw the next days results the room buzzed with excitement, everyone worked so hard and stitched away each day on each part of the bird in a structured fashion that created a flow of ease that was awesome to watch. Congratulations everyone that attended this years class and huge congrats to Sophie and my team Deb and Jenny that made this event run smoothly and fun to be at....even as the organizer I enjoyed it all!
We have invited Sophie back to Urunga for another workshop visit in 2021 and she has agreed thus far so keep fingers crossed and an eye out for details about that coming out over the next 12 months. www.textileretreats.com.au
