Go Create’s workers, Kath, Vicki and Erica, are having next year off as we need a break! Kath is busy with her shoe making business and Vicki has art to create in amongst lace teaching.

We have had a wonderful six years, hosting fantastic tutors and meeting so many lovely students. We have learnt so much, a lot of which Kath and Vicki are now including in their shoe making and mixed media art, and Erica is yet to choose between printing, stitching, leather work, drawing and felting.

This doesn’t mean the fun is over. The studio is still here always waiting to be filled with excited, creative artists. Last week alone we had an informal drawing group on Monday, the local lace makers on Tuesday, and a motley bunch of encaustics and mixed media artists on Thursday. 😊

We invite tutors and students to avail themselves of the studio, a great space in which to teach and learn. Although workshops will need to be organised by the tutor or a group of students, accommodation and food can still be provided by us. Please contact Vicki for more information at larrikinlace@gmail.com or on 02 67787231

Vicki Taylor has been a contemporary lace maker for thirty years and is internationally known for her trademark Larrikin Lace. Vicki has exhibited nationally and in Europe and taught her skills widely.  Over the years Vicki has taught contemporary lace making and brought tutors to The Studio from Europe, the US and from within Australia.

Vicki Taylor and her husband Jon live on an extensive sheep and cattle property well known for its Landcare value that has been in Jon’s family for generations. Eleven years ago Vicki had a spectacular studio designed and built by Michael Taylor on her sheep and cattle property that would draw like minded people into a community of creativity.

Now the farm management has passed down to the next generation, Vicki is able to focus her energy to her passion for contemporary lace, all things textile and The Studio. Kath Caddy, as Vicki’s daughter, has been raised a farm girl but is also drawn to the creative world. She has been involved with the running of The Studio and has nurtured her own creativity. She has practised felting, jewellery making, shoe making, sewing and many other crafts that have come her way. She is now teaching shoe making at The Studio and has started selling hand made shoes under the name Sole Purpose Uralla.

The New England Tablelands in northern NSW is a beautiful area known as High Country and has four clear seasons. Such a spectacular landscape provides a setting for a thriving art community around Uralla and a culture that is enriched by the University of New England located in Armidale. There are many things to see and do for the visitor, if you can tear yourself away from The Studio.
