Craft Jam

Ended - Tuesday 3 October 2023

Natalya Konforti is a designer, artist and cultural programme facilitator with a degree in Fashion Design from ESMOD International. A decade in the garment industry cultivated her response to colour palettes, a fascination with patterns as well as a deep appreciation for textile craftsmanship. Her process-driven, introspective practice is grounded in what we leave behind; channelling themes of memory, community and sustainability. Through a variety of mixed mediums including photography, paint and textile, her work pays homage to a meaningful technique, material or location.

Natalya has participated in exhibitions at Tashkeel, RAKFAF, Alserkal Avenue, DIFC Art Nights and World Art Dubai. She runs several non-profit community initiatives and is a contributor to cultural entities such as Jameel Arts Centre, Sharjah House of Wisdom, Dubai Design Week and Sharjah Art Foundation. Her work has been featured in numerous publications including The National, Khaleejesque, Friday Magazine, Arab News and Uppercase Magazine. Her writing has appeared in Pop Sugar ME and Xstitch magazine. She has been awarded a cultural Golden Visa by Dubai Culture and was named one of 12 UAE environmental thought leaders by Livehealthy.
