Live Embroidery with Embellished Talk
Join textiles designer Rebeckah Kemi Apara for a live demonstration of hand embroidery. Explore the textured world of surface design in clothing and lifestyle store Modern Society.
If you’re creatively curious about embroidery, come and see how textiles designer Rebeckah Kemi Apara designs and hand stitches her fabric samples in Shoreditch’s clothing and lifestyle store Modern Society. Visit the store and feel free to ask Rebeckah any questions about handicrafts, you will also have the opportunity to practise a few stitches.
Throughout the day Rebeckah will use embroidery threads by French brand DMC and stitch an array of botanical inspired designs on vibrant coloured fabrics. DMC has been developing award-winning fine threads and specialist yarns for makers since 1746.
Rebeckah founded her platform Embellished Talk to explore textiles by interviewing other makers and running embroidery workshops. She’s collaborated with GURLS TALK founded by fashion model Adwoa Aboah and has run workshops in WAH Nails, Palm Vaults, Anthropologie, Ace Hotel and Lush. Her workshops have been featured in British Vogue and Time Out. Join Rebeckah to see and experience how hand embroidery is created from start to finish.
