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!

Great class, loved how confident open and well organised the teacher was. Totally unfazed. Great resources. Good fun. Wish I'd realised there was such convenient parking before booking a spot much further away!
