Workshops & Lectures

Teaching allows me to share my enthusiasm for working with textiles and I always find it exciting to see the results of workshop participants.

Sharyn Hall, Textile Artist


Over twenty five years ago I was asked to teach patchwork and quilting techniques to a group of enthusiastic friends. Sharing what knowledge I had, I found I enjoyed the process. Workshops in textile processes were rare, and on completion of Visual Art (Textiles) study, majoring in Surface Design, I began teaching, using my recently acquired knowledge. This was the beginning of a work pattern, which combined my textile practice with teaching – allowing me to share my passion for working with textiles.

My workshops cater for those who are wanting to push the boundaries of their knowledge, by combining a variety of materials and techniques.

Processes include:

  • hand & machine stitching
  • dyeing & printing
  • manipulation & embellishment
  • collage using textiles, paper and mixed media.

I’m currently spending time in my studio, and have limited my workshop programme for 2013. Please contact me for information on how I can tailor a small group workshop for your art group or education program.


Artist’s Talks & Lectures

I delight in sharing my experiences, whether it be discussing my studio processes, showing a favourite item from my textile collection or telling stories about some of the wonderful exotic places I have visited….

Sharing of information, personal experiences and inspirational advice is a key part of my desire to assist those wanting to know more about textile art (and art in general), and who are interested in exploring their own opportunities as an artist. I am available for artist’s talks & lectures to art groups, organisations, galleries, high school and tertiary students and other art affiliated bodies.

Topics include:

  • my career in textiles
  • studio practice
  • travels with a textile influence
  • textile treasures (my collection)
