embroidery for beginners

Let’s learn hand embroidery together!

It’s a proven idea for an up close and personal meeting in a (not only) female group. During the workshop, we release creative blocks and start a new adventure with the art of hand embroidery. We learn the secrets of this traditional way of decorating fabrics with threads and the needle. We try our hand at basic stitches to slowly build confidence and proficiency in embroidery art.

My endless source of inspiration is Polish folk tradition. I try to refer in a modern way to folk costumes and motifs.
