Sikka 2023: Slow Stitching

Ended - Saturday 25 February 2023

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.

Drop-in and join Tashkeel member Natalya Konforti for a communal stitching session. Slow Stitching treats needlework as a meditative, stress-relieving practice. Needlework practitioners of all levels and mediums including embroidery, quilting, hand sewing, crochet, cross stitch, punch needle and macramé are invited to stitch together to create a communal banner which will be hung in the Tashkeel Courtyard. A great opportunity to seek advice, swap recommendations, and meet like-minded textile enthusiasts.
