During this hands-on 2 day course you will discover the joy of creating with unconventional and unusual materials; pre-used and repurposed to create contemporary art jewellery, small sculptural objects or art works for your wall, with an emphasis on learning techniques that can be also applied to create light shades, baskets, sculptures, cushions and more.


The choices are huge, with outcomes being totally unexpected and surprising.


Whether you are a complete beginner or bring experience with you, Maggy will gently guide you through her processes to manage repurposed materials to create innovative fibre and art textile works that are meaningful to you.


Maggy has a Masters in Fine Arts (hons), been a multi finalist at WOW winning two awards and has attended numerous international residences.
