"When my son was born, I decided I wanted to study fashion design as I was interested in industrial construction techniques and pattern drafting, so I enrolled at TAFE. Initially, this was really only for personal interest as I already have a degree in Health Sciences and am a qualified naturopath, but I had people ask if I could do private lessons and soon small group classes followed. It was such fun introducing students to their new favourite hobby.
Seeing a sense of pride reflect in their faces as they master a new technique and make something from scratch. I absolutely love the challenge of breaking down complex processes into simple steps and I like to prepare my classes meticulously so that students can get the most out of their time with me."
