Learn weaving and macremé in Hong Kong

I love weaving and macramé – I’m into eccentric style-driven pieces that take a slash of inspiration from the patterns of the seventies and are turned into an artfully crafted object or original, wearable item. I’ve always liked the work of talented Australian multitasker Natalie Miller – fibre artist, weaver, architect and interior designer – and the great news is I have arranged for Natalie to come to Hong Kong and teach new and wonderful things to a small group in a limited number of classes in May 2015. KPC Yarn is collaborating with their beautiful wools and cotton yarns in many colour variations, and classes will take place at the Mirth lifestyle store in Aberdeen. If you want to pick up extra wool or cotton after the class Mirth now stocks a large range of KPC Yarn – including some of my favourite colours. Places are booking fast so visit stylebrief.bigcartel to secure your place. 



















Natalie Miller is a fibre artist and weaver. For over 20 years she has been a registered architect and interior designer and she loves exploring the different techniques involved in working with textiles. Natalie studied tapestry weaving at Sturt Art and Craft Centre, Mittagong, and she spends as much time as she can in her idyllic home studio located in the stunning Southern Highlands in New South Wales, Australia, creating her beautiful tapestry weavings and macramé pieces.
