THANK YOU for becoming a Patron of my arts! I appreciate it VERY much!

With your contribution, we CO-CREATE magical fabrics, books, eBooks and online courses. I am constantly creating new STUFF and I feel very blessed to be sharing my adventure with all of you.

If I can reach my goal of 5000 Patrons, I will be in a position to make my courses and eBooks available to my Patrons for FREE.

Here is an example of one of my training videos so you can get some idea of the quality of information that I share...

Melanie Brummer's Academy

I have worked with textiles for more than twenty years. Between 1993-1998 I produced and sold tie dyed garments at markets. I made up to 100 garments a week during that period and really learned about dyeing and printing cloth hands-on.

Between 2001-2008 I manufactured bespoke textiles for the South African Fashion industry and in 2005 I had fabrics that I had made in the collections of six different designers at SA Fashion Week. My customers during this era of my work included Marianne Fassler, Black Coffee, Marion & Lindie, JJ Schoeman, Sun Goddess, Stoned Cherrie and David Tlale.

Melanie Brummer Production 2002-2008

From 2008-2016 I taught full time and have taught THOUSANDS of people around Southern Africa how to dye and print their own fabrics and in 2017 I launched my online learning platform that serves my international customers.

In 2010 I published Contemporary Dyecraft with Metz Press and in 2013 50 Silk Scarves followed. Contemporary Dyecraft has editions in North America through Firefly Books and in Russia, while Silk Scarves is available in North America through Stackpole Books. I have self-published scores of eBooks on specific techniques that I have developed over the years.

Along the way I started a volunteer driven initiative to get rainbow T-shirts to needy children. You will find more information at this link...

Rainbow T-shirts For Needy Children

More recently I started a global make-and-share project, to increase global awareness around how we use, re-use and dispose of textiles and textile waste. You will find more info about the project at this link...

The project has birthed a thriving online community that you will find at this link...

You are a TRUE PATRON OF MY ARTS. Words cannot describe how meaningful this contribution is to me.


You will receive access to the exclusive Patreon feed where I will share new releases and special offers. You will get 100% off any courses and eBooks that you sign up for and a collectible hand carved lino stamp from my global project. I will think up one or two other spontaneous surprises for you along the way that may or may not include gift packages of things I have made myself, for you, with LOVE.

Goals
$306 of $3,500 per month
I am making and sending out up-cycled fabrics to 200 makers and artists around the world in a global make-and-share to raise awareness about how we use, re-use and dispose of textile waste.

The first 70 parcels on the list have already been sent. The last 130 will cost me $3250 to ship. Your contribution can help me to reach that amount and finish the project sooner.

Up-Cycled Cloth Collective Global Make-And-Share

THANK YOU for helping me to crowd fund this project! You are a Shining Star!

When I am earning this amount a month I can focus my time and energy on completing this project. If I earned this amount in one month, I could finish the project in one month.

At my current rate of progress, it will take me another two years to complete this project.
