Rope Jewellery with Philippa Taylor, Ouchflower

  • The Windsor Workshop Level 1, 115 Chapel Street Windsor, VIC, 3181 Australia (map)

In a day and age where more and more emphasis is being placed on handcrafted pieces made with integrity and unique craftsmanship, Philippa Taylor would find herself sitting on the top rung. Combining handmade porcelain pieces with meticulous weaving, her 'wearable art is both elegant and grounded’. Her work has an earthy feel that could date back 1000’s of years to when tribes of women sat around weaving and knotting and creating remarkable pieces of both culture and art.

We are simply over joyed to be offering a workshop with Philippa, where you will learn how to create contemporary jewellery out of materials such as rope and fibre. Do not miss out on this wonderful opportunity to spend some time with one of Melbourne’s most admired artists!


Over a fun filled, coffee fuelled, champagne sipping morning, you will learn…

  • A series of construction techniques to create jewellery from rope
  • Macrame knots
  • Weaving techniques
  • Tassel making

What You Get

  • Depending on skill level, you will walk away with a few test pieces and or a finished necklace ready to wear.
  • A pack containing needle / fibre / rope / findings to make a piece of rope jewellery, plus take home notes so you can continue on your merry jewellery making way!
  • Food, glorious food! Have you seen our grazing table? Let’s just say we not only feed your minds, but we feed your tummies too. We will nourish you with an array of fine food, designed to fuel your body ready to produce that final masterpiece!
  • Oh, and a glass or two of delicious sparkling wine...
