Denise's foray into fashion and textile art is as a conceptual costumier, putting costumes on mannequins with 'fairy tale' personalities that are unique and stunning.

She has exhibited in the Northern Rivers area, in Sydney (the Rocks) and in the USA
Recently relocated from Lismore to Tenterfield, and now part of the Makeiteer team.
Her beautiful 'recreated' garments are works of art bound to be heirlooms for the future fashionistas.

A little paragraph and about myself and my art is on the way.

I have lived in Tenterfield for over 30 years, wearing different hats.
If I wanted to earn money, I used my teaching qualifications, I have also been an orchardist, b& b host, craft shop operator, Alpaca farmer and now a Chestnut farmer.
I have always had an interest in Australiana and Australian furniture which I now turn my hand to restoring and upcycling. I have quite a collection in my space at Make It Tenterfield.

Distinctively Different
Art and craft is my life. I cherish the joy my creations bring to me and my customers.
I use found objects, and I also find useful items in op shops. I love using nature's gifts, especially gum nuts. My journey has brought me to Make It Tenterfield and my maker's space has a selection of jewellery, wall hangings and cards.
My mental health has greatly benefited from my creativity endeavours. I hope my pieces bring you something to smile about too.

An abundance of locally grown fruit from my grandfather’s garden inspired me to begin my jam making journey fifteen years ago.

I enjoy experimenting with different flavour combinations and I am mindful of keeping waste to a minimum. Winning prizes for my homemade jams, relishes and pickles has only added to my joy in making them!

After moving from New Zealand in 1979 Cherie started her creative journey with decorative art painting, then moving to paper crafting, beading and most recently to vinyl printing on clothing and other items.

Cherie has owned and used a digital cutting machine for many years and is always looking for ways to expand her knowledge with its use.

Cherie enjoys experimenting with new art and craft forms and searching for new ideas to ever expand her exciting creative journey.

Look What I Made!

Look What I Made!

Erica Hammond made Tenterfield her home only a few years ago.

Settling in and looking for a creative outlet, a random conversation led to her being in the start up of Make It Tenterfield INC.

She loves redesigning, upcycling and transforming, rather than sending anything to land fill.

Quirky, unique and eclectic are features of her work.

Upcycled clothing, repurposed dolls, scissors and old jewellery feature in an ever changing display of her works.

Tramonto Design

Tramonto Design

Tramonto Design by Carmel Higgins showcases handbags, tote bags, wristlet and coin purses, leather bound books and bags in fabric and luxurious, kangaroo leather.

I also create cushions, tea-towels, aprons and potholders to add to your decor. My watercolour paintings, greeting cards and hardanger embroidery are crafted for the reflective times.

Tramonto Design is a cornucopia of colour, style and original design handmade to brighten your space.

Peakvue Studio

Peakvue Studio

I hand build functional and decorative ceramics pieces including tableware, vases and bottles, jewellery, soy candles in ceramic vessels and an annual, ever popular Christmas ornament collection.

My ceramics feature neutral coloured glazes, botanical prints, delicate patterns, textured carvings and simple phrases to remind us to slow down and take notice.

I combine the traditional techniques of slab building, pinching and coiling to create beautiful ceramic wares. Hand building, as opposed to wheel throwing really allows the ‘hand of the maker’ to shine through in each finished item. Every piece is slightly different. Every piece is perfectly imperfect!

Marie's Sewing Repair Cafe

I was born an environmentalist. I like to walk lightly on the earth. And at Make It Tenterfield, I do so by creating solutions with fabrics and fostering creativity in others, with positive environmental outcomes.

I fondly remember a school holiday, batik dyeing workshop that inspired me to open my childhood creative senses. And the joy of it. Today I want to create solutions for people that are sustainable; hence my interest in using fabrics to inspire people to recycle, up cycle, reuse, re-purpose, reinvigorate, repair, alter and enhance, every day items like clothing, linen, blankets and bags.

I also want to encourage people to sew by giving lessons, by example, by living my philosophy. By selling our own clothes, we are reducing pollution, global warming, sweatshop abuse, and at the same time having the joy of creation.

I hope that Make It can shine a light on how we all make a difference.
