Description

Karhina Designs – Original Sustainable Textile Art and Creative Craft Workshops to learn new skills and inspire you to create.

I specialise in mending, hand stitching and free machine embroidery using the needle as my paint brush and am always exploring new possibilities and ideas. I create unique and distinctive designs in wall art, handbags and jewellery.


I offer Creative Workshops in Melbourne or further afield when invited. The workshops include visible mending, clothing reconstruction, hand embroidery, machine embroidery and creative sewing. I will teach you new skills and give you ideas inspiring you to create more. The workshops offer a fantastic creative experience, are value for money and lots of fun.

I have been making my clothes and mending since a teenager as I love to personalise my wardrobe through embellishment and visible mending.  We all know that fast fashion is not sustainable so we need to love the clothes we already own and work harder to make them last. By mending our clothes we create a bond with them ensuring we wear them longer.  I am happy to accept commissions to mend your old favourites.  Feel free to get in touch with me to discuss your individual piece.

The majority of my products are made incorporating up cycled, recycled or reclaimed materials. Wherever possible additional materials are 100 percent natural, produced sustainably and sourced locally.

10 March 2020 • Garment Reconstruction workshop

What a great workshop. I managed to create three new looks from clothes I hadn't worn in ages. Lots of hints and tips provided by Tamara and great fun experimenting along the way. Great teacher!

A relaxed and informative session with lots of practical hands on experience and assistance. It was also great to get together with a group of like minded crafties. I'm inspired to get on with a number of projects recovering some of my favourite clothes and to find more projects for when these are finished. Will definitely be back for more sessions to expand my repetoire.
