I am a writer living in Blue Mountains. I specialise in theatre and storytelling. I also like to review restaurants.
By order of the Ministry- Let's Get Creative
As a naturally creative individual, I was delighted to find the Ministry of Home Economics (MOHE) workshops.

I attended the 'Pimp my Shoes' workshop and, although I didn't have any shoes, I came away with a ribbon corsage, a bouquet of 1940's felt flowers and satin feathers that I could apply to any item in my wardrobe.

The workshops are run by the 'Ministers of Artistic Licence and Manipulation' aka Kamilla and Kareena Little. The Textile and Design teachers, were both a fountain of creative knowledge, providing step-by-step instructions as well as the history behind each technique. And when they weren't discussing 1940's 'make-do and mend' principles they were entertaining us with anecdotes.

Attending alone wasn't a problem, the Constituents (other workshop attendees) and I all had a hilarious Sunday afternoon getting sticky fingers (there is no snobbery about the use of glue!), whilst chatting away.

The Sir Stamford Hotel, Central Quay is the perfect setting with comfy sofas and High Tea on the menu (optional for workshop attendees).

So for the budding crafter, avid recycler and anyone who is eager to be creative but has never used a needle in their life, MOHE is for you! The 'Pimp my Cardigan' workshop on Sunday 19th August 10-2pm will cover another 3 techniques, for the bargain price of $60 in advance, or $80 on the day (including all materials).Find out more
