Participants will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of structured make-and-take sessions over the 2 days. Stitch, basketry, bookbinding, printmaking, machine and hand stitching, dyeing, felting will be possible techniques and activities on offer.

We are still in the planning stages and are open to suggestions and expressions of interest from ATASDA members who may have a skill, technique or item that could be demonstrated or learned. Short informal sessions, half day sessions and whole day workshops can be offered. If you would like to get involved please enquire with the workshops committee. If there is something you would like to learn - we are also interested in hearing from you.

Members wishing to participate need to register their interest to assist in planning.

A nominal fee of $20 (or $30 for non-members) will be charged each day to cover room hire and incidentals.

If you want to take photographs for your own records, please check with the workshop helper first as some tutors do not allow photography.
