She has run workshops for USAID in Tibet, the Smithsonian Museum in China, and the British Council in Nepal and facilitated workshops in informal settlements in Mumbai, and with women’s groups in rural Nepal and Mexico. In 2016, after 20 years in South Asia, Susie returned to Australia and continues to make embroidered animations, automata and textile pieces.
