natalie miller workshops

Over the past 5 years I have travelled to various locations throughout Australia, and have taught internationally in Hong Kong, Bali, Thailand, Singapore, Paris, Japan, New York and Columbus. I have leaded textile tours and retreats in Thailand, Bali and Japan.

I have taught over 4500 students over the world in sell out workshops. I am very passionate about what I do and hope to teach you my ways and process of how I create my artworks.

For my weaving workshops I hand dye and wind all my wool and roving from Australian wool and provide you with the best loom available. With my macrame workshops you will get the best rope that I have spent years on sourcing.

I regularly lead textile tours in Japan, retreats in Bali and new for 2018, an amazing textile tour in India and Vietnam. Please email me for details bleu2@bigpond.com

Tapestry weaving
Join Natalie Miller for this colourful and inspiring workshop - an introduction to tapestry weaving with hand dyed wools, silk, roving and raffia.
You’ll learn how to warp up onto a timber loom and explore different tapestry weaving techniques.
Students will explore the essence of colour, form and texture to create a wonderful woven wall hanging from a range of natural fibres.
At the end of the workshop you’ll take home your very own Ashford timber weaving loom, entire roll of cotton warp and a selection of hand dyed wool and fibres in a canvas carry bag. 
This little bag of goodies will contain everything you need to continue your weaving from home. Be prepared to get addicted to this crafting goodness!
