I am a sewing teacher and have run my own sewing school - The Gaye Abandon School of Sewing, in Footscray, Melbourne since 2016. Prior to opening that, under The Gaye Abandon School of Sewing moniker, I hand made a range of textiles from recycled garments.
My studio practice currently involves two streams:
- sewing garments and other pieces by hand and machine
- creating more experimental stitched flat and 3D textile works. I would describe this stream very loosely as embroidery but I don't use any traditional techniques.
