ABOUT ANN-MAREE

I’ve been a maker since forever, spending many childhood afternoons mesmerised over DIY books and attempting to recreate them with whatever I could get my hands on. Fast forward another 20 years or so, I had a close call with a civil engineering degree before, saying f*k it and getting formally trained with a Diploma of Applied Fashion at TAFE and a Bachelor of Industrial Design at uni. Whilst I love working in the field, I also love teaching the skills that take mere ideas into reality, it’s like making magic right in front of your eyes!

I loved this class! Ann-Maree is a great teacher; so patient and she had a lot of handy tips n tricks. Even absolute beginners (such as myself) were able to sew up a small project by the end of the class. Well worth the cost of the class as I have since used my sewing machine at home with a fair degree of confidence and I have a few projects in mind which I plan to tackle tomorrow.
