Winter Workshops and Events

We are excited to offer textile workshops in our upstairs Textile and Design studio in Hawthorn, Melbourne. 

Each workshop is guided by Dinzi Amobi, Founder, and a local maker, and will be based working in Ulo’s creative space surrounded by fabrics, books and inspiration.  

There are only 10-12 spaces per workshop to ensure there is enough time to dedicate to guiding everyone individually through the activities.

All workshop attendees will be given a unique 10% discount code after the session to use on fabrics and other elements to continue their textile journey.

Workshop Details

Join Dinzi, Founder of Ulo, and Robyn Elliott, Founder of Robyn Elliott Modern Quilts, for a 3 hour workshop to learn how to create your own wall-hanging using African wax print textiles.  

During the workshop, Dinzi will share an introduction to African textiles discussing traditions, origins and dyeing processes of the African fabrics, whilst Robyn will present some of her own quilt and art work and discuss her unique and intuitive way in which she combines and designs using Ulo textiles.

  • This workshop is perfect for someone new to sewing or who is feeling a little rusty and needs a creative confidence boost.
  • All attendees will receive a complimentary Ulo textile box consisting of a beautiful selection of African fabrics and a 10% discount on fabrics after the session. 
  • Additional materials for the workshop will be included together with all the inspiration needed to make your own small wall hanging.
  • Refreshments included.

We hope you leave feeling inspired.
