At a very young age Marie started learning to sew under the tuition of her Dad who was a tailor. Marie has continued this interest over the years until she came here and noticed the community college advertisement for silvercraft classes. She developed a deep interest in this craft during this time and it was at these classes six years ago that Marie met our previous tutor Robyn.
The adventure continued as Marie has progressed to becoming a tutor for the community college as well as being a member of the Lapidary Club and running classes there on her allocated days. The Lapidary Club has an annual display at the Mingara Centre and as a member of the committee, Marie has taken the helm with organising all those fine details that tutors know only too well go into setting up an exhibition.
