We will be starting of from visiting couple great second hand/vintage fashion shops where you can look around and see what Berlin Vintage market has to offer. You can buy something if you like that you can use in the class but it's not essential.
Bring your new item along (or one you already have) and learn to stitch beautiful hand embroidery designs to bring colour and texture to your old clothing. We will stop in one of my favourite cafes by the canal in Neukolln where we will have a drink and work on up-cycling your clothing.
I will be teaching you all basic embroidery stitches and create together a small embroidery design (this can be added on a cuff, shirt collar, bottom of trouser leg etc). The item of clothing we will use needs to be of a light fabric, so either shirt, cotton trousers and skirts and without any stretch in it. I will provide few options of designs to chose from (flower, eyes, geometric,etc)
You will learn: -How to stretch fabric on an embroidery hoop -How to transfer a design on fabric -Essential tools - Information about different yarns you can use -Three to four embroidery stitches that you can use to create modern embroidery designs on clothing
