MILLIE is EMILY CHANDLER; A fourth generation textile craftisan who has a penchant for all things sparkly, fluffy and bright. All of her wares are made by her own little hands in her Ballarat based studio.
After she graduated with a BA Textile Design (RMIT), MILLIE made fashion and accessories; where textile design is the focus and rainbows, happiness and smiles are the aim.
Over the past couple of years MILLIE has taken a little hiatus from creating for market while she works part time for The Australian Yarn Company; designing hand knitting and crochet patterns for home crafters. She continues to spread her passion for knitting while teaching as a sessional lecturer in fashion knitwear at RMIT.
MILLIE is currently working with various techniques, from drawing and illustration to hand painting fabric, pompom making, digital printing, knitting, photography…she tries a little bit of everything and her work is a constant evolution of technique development and creative play…so watch this space universe as amazing things are coming your way from this little fly!
