About

Empress Wu Designs specialises in creating handmade treasures.

Empress Wu Designs started off as a hobby and it now brings me joy to create and teach others to find their own creative expression. I call my art works “handmade treasures” which are inspired by people, places, heritage and literature, and are influenced by an eclectic range of media and approaches.

I can’t boast of a childhood interest in creating art, unless designing paper clothes for paper cut out dolls counts! After University when I married and lived in small isolated country towns, I joined spinning, weaving, macramé and pottery craft groups and sewed, knitted and crocheted clothes for myself and our children. My interest in textiles remained a hobby while I followed a career in English and Drama teaching. Cloth doll making, embroidery and beading alleviated the everyday work stress of being a high school principal, a job which also gave me great joy and satisfaction.

Not being a “retiring” type, when I finished full time work in 2005, I began to teach beading and art doll making, gave birth to Empress Wu Designs, volunteered with a village project in Papua New Guinea and became an accredited Contemporary Clay Instructor (polymer clay and precious metal clay – silver).

My current work is a coalescence of both past and newly acquired skills, techniques and ideas.

    I loved my work as a high school principal. Even more, I now love the flexibility and luxury of spending time my grandchildren, doing community work with my Rotary club and creating handmade treasures.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

If the recipient lives in the Newcastle (NSW) area, I am happy to gift wrap with a greeting card, and deliver personally ( no charge)

If the recipient lives in Australia, I will happily gift wrap, include a greeting card and send directly for the Australian shipping charge

Custom and personalized orders

I can custom make items , but cannot guarantee they will be exactly the same as a sample. Every item I make is hand made and is therefore unique.
