There is something touching and vulnerable while experiencing a fragile flower or a leaf. We will be able to save these memories through embroidery. This is a full beginners workshop – besides working on our designs by composing them from real flowers we will cover all the basics. You will leave the workshop equipped with tips and tricks to continue your embroidery journey.

All of this in a friendly, supportive atmosphere that will let you tap into your own creativity and discover that you can also draw patterns for your own projects!

PRIVATE 5 hour session
I invite you to try out and learn how to embroider on your own clothes, make your own pillowcases & design your own creations during a private session. We will meet for 5 hours and go through all the details to help you start your embroidery journey. You will get an energy & confidence boost to embark on your own embroidery journey.
Embroidery is a mindful and creative way to express yourself. It helps with mental health and gives refuge from everyday activities. Creating something with our own hands is unbelievably rewarding—a mix of pride, excitement, and accomplishment.
What you see in the picture is an embroidery I made in 2019. The word DOBRO means GOOD. This is the first embroidery I made since I was a teenager. I’m showing you this alongside the other creations I made for pure fun to show you that anyone can do embroidery, and with the right approach and teacher, you can explore your creative potential. You don’t need to be good at it. Just having a hobby benefits our mental health.
I invite you to try it out for yourself, and you will observe how it impacts your well-being step by step. So take a look down below & check available embroidery workshops.
As children, we’re often discouraged from doing art or taught that we should create in a specific way to the liking or not of people that decided it for us: teachers, parents, and family. Along the way, we most likely get blocked & forget that art and creativity is a basic need for human expression. Art should be fun and should not be created to the liking of others. You can see that when you watch kids under the age of 6 enthusiastically drawing & exploring different shapes and colors. One may tell that you should forget about art when you grow up and start doing grown-up things. This is far from the truth: we should do art & be creative as it’s one of the fundamental parts of the human experience & it’s proven that it helps with our mental health. I always make sure that I teach that during the workshop and help you to unleash that curiosity and joy that accompanied you when you were little.
