Sunday Course of Hand Embroidery: Introduction in HAND EMBROIDERY and implementing it on clothing WORKSHOP by Damaja Through learning the basic hand embroidery techniques you will be able to refresh your old clothes instead of throwing them away or sending them to thrift stores and buying new. You can bring your own clothing (made on non-stretchy fabric that you want to refresh with a new decorative texture of hand embroidery) and design that you want to embroider, you can improvise with a drawing on spot or you can use some of the designs offered by us. You can also just bring yourself if you are just into learning the basic embroidery techniques. We will provide you with all the necessary materials and variety of embroidery designs for you to choose. Embroidery is a meditative technique. Come and have a nice and inspiring afternoon. Embrace your creativity. Relеаse all your thoughts, let your brain completely relax and allow your intuition to contribute in every string you take. This workshop will be taught in English and is designed for all skill levels - from embroidery beginners to seasoned stitchers. No previous knowledge or skills are necessary! Everybody's welcomed. All materials provided: embroidery hoops, fabrics, needles, transferring paper, embroidery stitches, embroidery designs, drinks, snacks, music, fun!
Hi, I am Stefanija and I work behind the label Damaja. I am a hand embroidery designer based in Berlin, Germany. I've graduated architecture, but I've found ultimate pleasure in hand embroidery as meditative and satisfying craft. I'm self taught and I practice hand embroidery in the past two decades. I believe in more mindful approach to life through reuse of textiles, slow fashion, slow creation. My work consists of teaching workshops, upcycling fabrics to produce accessories and collaborations with local designers to embroider sustainable clothing, made in ethical environment.
The workshop will take place in our studio and store space in Neukolln, called The Conscious Club. We're a collective of 4 creatives and you will get to know our cozy working space in a vibrant Berlin neighbourhood.
