Embroidery on paper- workshop by Marianna Karava

Friday 12th of August, 18.00-21.00

Footnote Centre, Kralja Milutina 34, Beograd 11000



 ‘The river leads us back to the source’

In this three-hour workshop Marianna will share her research of how embroidery can be applied to the book arts. Embroidery on paper can be used to create text and images, and we will use simple stitches techniques for the creation of embroidered cards.

Marianna will share traditional Greek motifs she uses for her practice, which you can use as source material or as an inspiration. You are also very welcome to bring your own drawings or designs. Sewing, a calming and grounding practice could be a creative way to connect us with tradition and with each other by sharing our practice, knowledge and stories. Even if you are a beginner, you are very welcome to join- no experience with embroidery is necessary.


Basic tools and materials are provided; feel free to bring your own

The workshop will held in English
