Cassowary Online Workshop with Sofie Standing

Have received my kit for the Cassowary Online Workshop with Textile Artist Sofie Standing from South Africa (have a look at her FB profile HERE ...she does some amazing work).

Was going to do one of her courses last year. The course is offered through Lesley Mays Patchwork & Craft at Mildura, so this year I made the jump.

This is a thread painting project and I am highly intimidated by it. Cannot really imagine being able to produce this weird looking animal in fabric (look at those eyes!). Never done thread painting before and I literally have no idea what is involved. Sofie will be available for 3 months over a private FB group to teach us what to do. Very curious about how this will work and looking forward to it. The course is starting on 14th May with an introductory talk. So, still time to join if someone is interested.

Very excited!



  1. I am in the class as well Karin. Sophie is in fact from the UK but lives in Kenya where she has been for at least 10 yrs but lived in Sth Africa prior to this. I have done other online courses with her and she is amazing- a beautiful person and fantastic tutor. You will enjoy it.

  2. It looks like an AMAZING course. I'm glad you jumped and look forward to reading all about it!

  3. That is such a beautiful bird. Your fabrics are equally as beautiful. I think you are going to have a blast in this class and I'm already looking forward to seeing what you create during it.

  4. You are fearless, Karin -- you can do this! And I can't wait to see the pictures as you go along!
