Bring together textile off cuts, upcycled/recycled fabrics, yarns, paper, embellishments, needles and embroidery threads, and earlier embroidery stitches, to make in new and contemporary ways, your own personal, creative textile and fibre work. Textile art is finally being recognised in the art world. Learn about keeping an art journal to explore ideas, add your research, and record your creative progress.

This course runs for six sessions, over six consecutive weeks at our Murwillumbah campus.


Multi-award winning artist, Bonny Shore, works mainly in textiles, stitch, and print.  Her mixed media works often combine layers of eco-dye and print, paint, fabric collage, fibres, and stitch.  Her artworks are usually inspired by nature and the environment, but also address social issues, and climate change.

In 2023 Bonny was engaged to conduct a Masterclass in Contemporary Textiles and Slow Stitch at Boonah, S E. Queensland. She also won the Ipswich Art Awards (mixed media), a c.a.s.e. Inc. Mentoring Grant, and also a Highly Commended at Ocean Shores Art Expo. Her artworks have been exhibited in gallery exhibitions at The Centre, in QLD’s Scenic Rim, Mackay, Northern NSW, Newcastle, and Melbourne.  Her current exhibition, ‘A Stitch in Time’, can be viewed at Brunswick Heads Library.
