The idea is to show local communities how to use Nicole's equipment without being in a professional studio. The workshops are aimed at beginners through to experienced artists and the relaxed environment allows both abilities to mix together and collaborate, sharing ideas, techniques and developing concepts. The aim is to pass on skills to others and by the end of the workshop those involved will be taught how to use the equipment to suit their needs and abilities. The workshops are for those who just want to try something new, or to pursue a career in the craft.
Nicole has all sorts of people who attend the workshops from students who are wanting to start a portfolio, fashion designers who are wanting to learn a new technique for their collection, business men and women who need a break from their regular routine. The workshops are open to all. At the end of the workshop participants will have learnt how to use the equipment, where to source the materials, how to set up a studio space at home. Participants will also have a collection of fabric and paper samples and a range of finished products to take home.
