Your teacher:

Aoife Billings has obtained both an Associate and Bachelor Degree in Fashion Design and Technology and has been teaching sewing lessons for over 6 years. She regularly holds other textiles workshops such as screen printing, embroidery and quilting with her brother Aaron.

The reason Aoife teaches sewing is to equip people with the skills to express themselves through clothing, without the need to battle it out with the fashion industry with its size, gender and ethical limitations.

Aoife can be flexible around your schedule, contact her via
aoifebillings@gmail.com for additional booking times and more info!

Sewing lessons will take place at Pink Ember Studio, 40a Ohea St Coburg. Pink Ember is a welcoming studio/art space Aoife has created with three other artists.
