A unique volunteering opportunity in Hornsby

Artist members from Studio ARTES will be guest exhibitors at our 2016 Quilt Show - we are looking forward to seeing their work displayed along our quilts. As we learn more about the Studio and the artists, and they learn more about us, we are finding other ways that we might be able to work together from time to time.

Jess, who co-ordinates the Friday sewing/textile group at the Studio, has asked if we can help to find some volunteers who know a bit about sewing, by putting the word out among our sewing contacts. If you are in Sydney's northern suburbs, this might be just the opportunity you are looking for:
Studio ARTES is looking for volunteer sewers to help with the Friday group, at our Hornsby Studio. 
We have sessions from 9.30 - 11.30, and 12.30 - 2.30 making bags, cushions and other simple sewn items.  
We often screen print designs onto fabric and then turn them into beautiful original pieces! there are also several members who like weaving and hand sewing too.  
Volunteers with skills in any of these areas would be much appreciated. Studio ARTES would ideally like people to help on a regular basis but are happy to work around busy lives of our valuable helpers!  
Please contact Jess if you are at all interested or would like to find out more: or 02 9482 5266 
Studio ARTES is a non-profit organisation offering creative programs to adults with disabilities. For more information, visit  

Last year, the Tuesday night group helped out with making simple
envelope closing cushion covers for an exhibition by Studio ARTES
members at Koskela, and for sale at Gallery ARTES in Hornsby.
The fabric for the cushion fronts is artwork from the members,
digitally printed onto cotton canvas.
