Workshop, Primrose Paper Arts, Cremorne, NSW

Drypoint Paper Plate Printing workshop
with Peta Lloyd
this Saturday and Sunday (22/23 October) at Primrose Paper Art & Craft Centre

The cost is $140 for the two days.

Paper plate is a wonderfully versatile printmaking technique.
Peta will show us how to create a plate, guide us through inking them up and printing them.
On day two using our prints we will then experiment with a number of techniques to create a series of variations of our prints: print using chine colle and collage; hand colour; stitching to create line and layering; piercing to create lines; use fabrics or other papers and stitching to attach.

For all enquiries contact Dinah Beeston at

WS16-8 Annemaree Dalziel - It’s a Wrap – Designing Art-to-Wear

One Day Only! Learn how an expert, Annemaree Dalziel, creates art to wear. Watch and be a part of the audience participation as Annemaree drapes fabric onto a mannequin to demonstrate her process of creating a unique item of clothing.

Saturday, 19th November, 2016


Epping Creative Centre - Epping NSW


9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Registration is open until: Friday 11th November, 2016

FeesATASDA Member: $150; Non-Member: $200

Requirements: No special requirements, but it would be suggested that students bring pen or pencils and paper to take notes.

In this design class, Annemaree will bring a mannequin as an aide to designing a costume, or art to wear. Draping a variety of fabrics over the shape while developing an idea, she will talk about the processes she uses and how she brings her ideas to life. The process is a hands-on one, in which Annemaree uses the fabric in developing her ideas and creating a finished work of textile art to wear rather than reproducing a design from the page. This workshop is suitable for all levels of skill and experience and would be particularly relevant to HSC Textile students.

Annemaree Dalziel is an interdisciplinary artist, costume designer, dramaturge, writer, curator and creative producer.

WS16-7 Pam de Groot - Dimension and Texture in Felt

Through sculptural techniques, including resists and felt lamination, we will develop forms to explore spaces, surface, colour and dimension in nature. Some felting experience essential.

Saturday & Sunday, 22-23 October, 2016

Epping Creative Centre – Epping NSW 


9:30 am – 5 pm

Registration is open until: Friday, 14 October, 2016

Fees: ATASDA Member: $150; Non-Member: $200

Requirements: Material Fees approx.$15 for materials supplied by tutor. List of material requirements for each student to bring to the workshop will be supplied on full payment of fees.

Bring your felting experience out into the third dimension. In this workshop Pam de Groot shows you how to tease and twist sculptural forms in felt. Using techniques of resists and felt lamination you will learn to develop structural shapes in which you can explore spaces and surface textures to utilise the dimension of natural and organic forms. You will be guided and encouraged to draw on your inner creativity to experiment with colour as you create some exciting shapes in felt.

A life-long passion for arts and crafts has seen Pam touch on many and varied fields of expertise. In 1989 she completed a studio ceramics course and worked as a successful studio potter for many years before being drawn to fibre art. She now works predominately with wool, silk and other natural fibres, combining felting, embroidery and dyeing to create artworks, garments and accessories.
