“Hello, my name is Nora and I am from Hungary.
I’ve always liked to think that I am creative. My major goal is to make dresses, this is what I have always wanted to do. I am self taught but the volunteers here know many tricks that you just can’t teach yourself.”
We decided to come here in Melbourne because my husband wanted more challenges in his work and we thought Australia would be a nice place. I’ve always liked to think that I am creative, so I decided to start designing jewellery, bags and clothes. By 2013 I had opened my own business on Etsy called InconnuLAB.
On my second day in Melbourne I met Macarena. We went hiking in Sorrento with a big group and she told me about SisterWorks. And so I came. Maca says I don’t smile much but even if she doesn’t believe me, I like to be here. I think it is a very nice place. You can be in others company. If you are just alone at home you don’t realise the time and it can get lonely. It’s nice to be with others.
I usually work with leather to make bags, keychains and belts. My major goal now is to learn how to sew quality dresses, this is what I have always wanted to learn. I am self taught but Phillipa, a volunteer here, knows lots of tricks and things that you just can’t teach yourself. In the future I want to make and sell my dresses at SisterWorks and on my online store”.
