Spil’no Embroidery Masterclass

April 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Hosted by Create for Ukraine and KX Embroidery

Guided by the Ksenia from KX Embroidery, you will have the opportunity to create your own embroidered motif from scratch, using a mid-century design from the distinctive regional embroidery of eastern Podillia.

About the artist: Ksenia is a grandma-taught and self-taught tragic for Ukrainian embroidery. For Ksenia, embroidery is a connection to heritage and a focus on crafting truly gorgeous pieces that live up the long and rich tradition of Ukrainian embroidery. You can read about and see more of Ksenia’s embroidery at KXembroidery.

About the design: Rushnyky, ritual cloths, from eastern Podillia have an extremely distinctive style of their own amongst Ukrainian embroidery. Their designs contain images harking back to primordial culture and beliefs, classically using the technique of kachalochka, a rolling satin stitch. These figures, depicted on a wedding rushnyk, have joined hands in a circular dance at an event, which would bring a community together.

About the charity: We invite you to come together, to join hands with us in bettering the lives of communities in de-occupied territories. Proceeds from the masterclass will go to KHARPP, a charity repairing homes in towns and villages in eastern Ukraine. KHARPP adapt to the changing situation on the ground and work closely with local administrations to use donations in the most effective way possible. Please visit their website or social media pages to read about and be inspired by their work.
