Suzanne Schroder

Suzanne has been a dressmaker in the Hunter Valley for over 30 years, sewing everything from jeans hems to wedding dresses and wearable art.


A career that began with two years at TAFE Fashion school and a short stint in the fashion industry.


In more recent (mid life crisis) years she remembered her Fashion Design aspirations and went back to study, first completing a course in millinery then on to Certificate IV in fine arts where her artistic passion was reignited.

From here Suzanne began to find many online art classes and discovered a love for mixed media, where she was free to use anything and everything on the page/canvas!

This is a developing  and constantly changing process where there are no limits. 

Along with this, Suzanne has become conscious of the need to to cut down on waste and encourages up-cycling wherever possible. In her classes there will be re-using, re-fashioning and re-purposing whenever possible.

Suzanne is now keen to teach and share her knowledge with others and encourage them along their own creative journeys.
