This class is suitable for both beginners and more experienced sewers. Men are encouraged to attend! Our small class numbers allow your teacher Gaye to give each student lots of personalised attention. 

We will provide: Pins, darning needles, sashiko thread, scissors, and pre-loved fabrics.

Gaye Naismith, founder and director of The Gaye Abandon School of Sewing and Upcycling has been an avid sewer for over 35 years. She possesses extensive knowledge of machine and hand stitching techniques, garment construction following sewing patterns, fitting and professional finishing.

Guild Of Objects

Vendor since 2019

In the not so distant past we were able to explore and engage in a creative space within the boundaries of our domestic environment. More recently with the advent of mass produced furnishings and readily available home decor, coupled with a trend toward apartment living and the rise of the dual income family then this space for the creative endeavour within the domestic sphere has all but disappeared.

In recognition of this the Guild of Objects is a space that supports and holds space for all to pursue, source or explore their own innate creativity. The Guild provides a space for artists, craftspeople and makers to sell their products. The Guild runs workshops in a beautiful home like environment that gives everyone the opportunity to explore their own creativity and finally the Guild organises and runs design, craft and art tours to Japan, Bali and France in order to provide a forum to explore the world through a creative lens. 

The Guild is a space that honours the notion of Connection through Creativity

Connections with ones creativity, connection with ones self and connection to others through mutual pursuit.

Come and visit us at 35 Smith Street, Fitzroy 3065 Australia.
