Event description

Description

On Tuesday 5 December decorate your denim with textiles designer Rebeckah Kemi Apara and founder of Embellished Talk in Ace Hotel Shoreditch.

Bring in your own denim piece of clothing and during the 2-hour workshop Rebeckah will teach you how to embroider French knots, satin, running and chain stitches onto it. We’ll practise on plain cotton fabric to begin with so you initially get the hang of the stitches. We’ll also play around with stitching on template designs. Once you feel confident you can embroider on your desired denim. If you don’t want to embroider on your own item you can make an embroidered patch to stitch onto something else later. As it's the month of Christmas you can also personalise an item as a gift. The main aim of the workshop is to learn the basics of embroidery and continue in your spare time. The workshop is aimed mainly at beginners but all other levels are welcome and all sewing equipment will be provided. Embroidery threads sponsored by DMC.

Rebeckah graduated with a degree in Fashion Textiles at the London College of Fashion in 2007 and has since been perfecting her skills in hand embroidery and embellishments. Earlier this year she collaborated on an embroidery project with GURLS TALK the platform founded by fashion model Adwoa Aboah. She has previously run textiles workshops at WAH Nails, Boxpark Shoreditch, Palm Vaults, WeWork, Warehouse, Second Home and West Elm.

In May 2015 Rebeckah founded Embellished Talk her platform to explore textiles through digital content and creative workshops.

What else is included in the workshop you ask?

  • A goody bag of sewing treats (1 embroidery hoop, needles and thread) to continue your new skills at home
  • Drinks and light refreshments
  • A break away from your phones and busy schedules. Using your hands to create is therapeutic, confidence boosting and good for your well-being
  • A good opportunity to learn new skills in an intimate setting that you can develop in your own time and add new personalised life to your clothes and/or interiors.
