About the workshop
Work closely with designer Sharka Bosakova to learn how to design and apply your own embroidery patterns on garments. Sharka will guide you through the process of gathering your ideas and inspiration, making concept sketches and translating them into an embroidered product.
You are welcome to bring in your own clothing or choose from some textiles we have provided. Revamp your treasured T-shirt, cotton or linen skirt, old jeans or denim jacket and give them new life and meaning. You’ll leave with a unique fashion piece and the perfect conversation starter!
