Slow Stitching Wednesdays

Ended - Wednesday 7 December 2022

Natalya is a designer, artist and workshop facilitator with a degree in Fashion Design from ESMOD International. A decade in the fast-fashion industry sparked a desire to shift away from industrial mass-production, igniting a fascination for the imperfections of handmade craftsmanship. Her practice is driven by backstories and takes the form of labour-intensive artisanry, paying tribute to a technique or material. Through her company Glitches & Stitches, Natalya is a regular contributor to entities such as Dubai Design Week, Jameel Art Centre and Alserkal Avenue. She runs several events such as Dubai Craft Jams, Embroidery Club. Natalya is a member of Tashkeel.

Join Tashkeel First Solo Artist-in-Residence Natalya Konforti at Tashkeel Al Fahidi (House 10) for a morning of communal stitching in the courtyard.

Slow stitching treats needlework as a meditative, stress-relieving practice. Participants are encouraged to contribute to a communal memory quilt by bringing in a small piece of fabric that reminds them of a particular moment in time. Needlework practitioners of all levels and mediums including embroidery, quilting, hand sewing, crochet, cross stitch, punch needle and macramé are invited to bring in their projects to stitch together as a community. This event is an opportunity to seek advice, swap recommendations, and meet like-minded textile enthusiasts.
