Designer in Residence Programme at Embellish Atelier

We invite all talented designers, artists and craftspeople to apply for our Designer in Residence Programme providing a wonderful opportunity to showcase, teach, and/or demonstrate a particular skill. 

Our experience to-date with Designers in Residence has been very positive:

Testimonial from Rose-Marie Hillier

“…If you’re running a hands-on workshop you don’t need to be worried about the facilities, the lighting or the ambiance. At Embellish atelier, everything is there. The atmosphere is delightful, there’s plenty of space and Catherine Kelly is a fabulous ‘host’; engaging, super-friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and totally professional. Catherine has charm like her beautiful atelier…”

Testimonial from Maggie Videan – Inspired Wire

“When deciding to sponsor a small artisan community in Johannesburg, South Africa, I hadn’t imagined just how to best showcase some of this extraordinary wire and beadwork. Cathy incorporated the Christmas selection of trees and reindeers into her Yuletide workshops and gave them a glorious backdrop to be truly appreciated and they literally walked out the door. It’s a wonderful space to showcase lovely things of all sorts. Cathy has the creative flair to blend it all beautifully!”

 Testimonial from Louise MacDonald- Milliner 

“Thank you so much for the opportunity to teach at The Embellish/ Hatters Millinery Supplies studio for the weekend.

I really enjoyed it for many reasons.; Your kind, generous and welcome hosting,; the large space full of all things Millinery… an extensive wall of blocks, flower making molds, and very conveniently a whole room onsite stocked full of millinery materials available for students to purchase.This is a great environment for students.Having yourself and an assistant on hand to help students and myself if required was a great support with the full class.Thank you so much for the opportunity to teach these budding NSW milliners. I really enjoyed the experience. I hope to visit again!” Louise Macdonald
