Shared Structure: Contemporary Embroidery and Weaving Workshop with Czech and Slovak Designers

This is a practical workshop suitable for all ages. The topic is contemporary embroidery and weaving used by young designers. Participants will be working with various materials and techniques, some traditional, some recycled, and some newly developed by the designers. The individual pieces of embroidery will later be attached to form a large collective canvas. Material, tools and guidance will be provided. Drop-in sessions.

The workshop will be led by Tereza Rosalie Kladošová, assisted by her colleagues from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. Tereza has a long term interest in embroidery which forms an essential part of her garments. The techniques used in this workshop are inspired by the 1960´s technology of weaving chemlon into a special meshwork called tapiko. Using merino wool and different types of meshworks, Tereza playfully recycled the technique to create her own wild and beautiful ornaments.

Tereza RosalieKladošová is currently a master’s student at UMPRUM’s Fashion Design department. She has interned at Jerusalem’s Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design and with Anne Sofie Madsen in Copenhagen. In her multiple collections she balances around craft and plays with humour and overstatements. Her idiosyncratic garments caught the eye of numerous foreign imprints such as Dash Magazine.
