About Cath

Cath graduated from Curtain University in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Craft! Her focus was textiles, and after graduating, left Perth for Sydney where her first job was with John Kaldor. In this job she learnt all about the real ‘rag trade’ and travelled to European and Japanese Studios 4 times a year.

After a few years Cath began her own design business called ‘Art Park’…two children cameCath Derksema along and her world evolved around them..six years later she began ‘Prints Charming’ which was a successful design business with a strong ‘hand crafted’ view on fabrics, quilting, screen printing and stitching. Cath then began a new venture ‘The Happenstore ‘ …. A large space that is retail and workshops and studio…a ‘real’ space for artisans and makers….

She now enjoys focussing her attention to applying art directly on to fabric.

This workshop is a joyful fun 3hrs on Friday afternoon that enables you to completely immerse Cath Derksema Creative Embroideryyourself in the world of fabric making.

You will be given a linen draw string treasure bag, that is beautiful to work onto..Again, there will be many samples to inspire you and give you direction and ideas.

What to bring:
Please bring with you any simple ideas you may have…but no stress if you don’t! Cath has a vast array of samples to inspire you!
