Workshop: Tulle Embroidery

Workshop: Tulle Embroidery

In this series of textile craft workshops, we’ll visit some of the foremost artisans in Sweden and learn a little history and the basics in tulle embroidery, quilting, weaving, printing and stranded knitting. The workshops are a mix between a studio visit, artist talk and workshop that you can follow along with - full of tips and inspiration! Featuring Katarina Evans, Kerstin Neumüller, Linnea Blomgren, Elsa Chartin and Anna Bauer. The workshop can be streamed for 72 hours, meaning that you can take a break whenever you need to.

In this tulle embroidery workshop, we will visit Master Embroiderer Katarina Evans at Handarbetets Vänner, and learn a little about the history of white embroidery and tulle embroidery, before we dive into our project. Join us by pressing the “Rent” button in the right hand corner!

This series of online workshops was made possible by the support of Kulturförvaltningen Stockholm Stad.

Webinar 3: Textile + Fiber Design - Collaborating with Nature

Webinar 3: Textile + Fiber Design - Collaborating with Nature

Is biodesign within textiles and fibers the way to a the sustainable future? What can designers learn from nature? How can designers collaborate with nature in their design processes? In this webinar, three research projects will be presented that will answer these questions and more. Designer Linda Nurk will present her project, Couture Vivante: bio-grown fashion, where she combines the raw elements of nature with couture through the development of home- grown bio-textiles and urban micro-farming of silkworms. Designers Laura Luchtman and Ilfa Siebenhaar will present their research project, Living Colour, which explores the possibilities of natural textile dyeing with bacteria that produce pigment. They aim to draw attention to the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration, in their case a combination of design and bioscience. Dr Mitchell Jones is a postdoctoral researcher at the Materials Science and Technology Institute at TU Wien, the University of Technology in Vienna. He will give insights into his research on fungi-derived leather-like materials and soft foams for fashion, product design and architectural applications. Join us for this webinar held on the 17th May 2021 at 18:00, the last in a series of webinars made possible by the generous support of Kulturförvaltningen Stockholm Stad.
