Individually there is the possibility to do a workshop 'kintsugi for cashmere and silk'.
Kintsugi is the Japanese technique in which porcelain is repaired with gold.
We do the same with gold thread for the recovery of precious materials such as cashmere and silk.
- composing and designing the repair palette
- mapping and designing damage
- determining the size and ratio of the repair patch
- composing a fabric palette
- stitching zigzag with gold thread.
The location of the workshops is in the heart of Amsterdam, just behind Dam Square
Please note: this is not about replacing zippers or attaching buttons, but purely about repairing the material and fabric.
We only work with natural materials such as wool, silk and cotton.
In this workshop you will learn everything about the different techniques, their advantages, and of course how to use them.
You bring your own items of clothing that you want to repair.
And we do everything by hand.
Needle and thread, repair materials and tools are available.
