Episode 2 Get out of Teaching Podcast: Elizabeth with Robyn Hawke (interior designer‪)‬ Get out of Teaching

    • Education

In Episode 2 of Get out of Teaching, Elizabeth Diacos interviews Robyn Hawke, founder of Inspired Spaces. Robyn shares her story of her journey out of Education, the training she needed to do to work in her current role and the fears she faced about whether or not to stay or go.

At age 43, with a severely disabled teenage daughter, a 6-year-old daughter and a husband who frequently travelled, Robyn took the bold decision to go back to full time study.
Giving up a solid 20-year career in high school, teaching design, she chose to follow her passion. Despite all her in-depth knowledge, she still felt it was imperative to become fully qualified so she could confidently offer clients professional, knowledgeable and quantitative skills to give them comfort that her designs would be both structurally and aesthetically robust.

After graduating from the 3-year design course at Nepean Design Centre, she worked for Clarendon Homes to gain invaluable experience, learning how to design everything including the kitchen sink. This knowledge allowed her to understand contracts, builder’s inclusions and anything associated with building.

Living in Sydney, Australia Robyn can be contacted for interior design work at
