About your tutor, Kate Boulton
I’m an avid recycler of all manner of things, and I get a great deal of pleasure making beautiful things from what otherwise may have gone to landfill. My parents lived through the depression, so I learnt to hang onto things just in case they came in handy. We made do with what we had.
I love being able to make beautiful things from scraps. I consider it a gift and my calling. I don’t get much time to read lots of books these days, however I am constantly ‘reading textiles’ and looking for ways to make them into something beautiful and useful. I ran successful dressmaking and button making businesses in Melbourne, honing my skills professionally for over 40 years. On retiring four years ago, I have enjoyed using my extra time, turning my extensive stash of materials into new and beautiful art pieces.
