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.

Loved the idea of adding a bit of sparkle to my jeans. Tamara had lots of samples to show us and some great ideas for each of our items. I haven't really sewn before but she made it all so easy and had lots of metallic fabrics and threads for us to use. Loved this class :))

A great class. Learnt so much and now have some great things to wear for a lot longer. Lots of tips and tricks shared making me confident to go on adding lots of bling in the future. Tamara was great and she offered a great afternoon tea too!!

Wonderful class. Tamara is an excellent teacher, so patient, with loads of experience and ideas to share. Great value for money as she had so many bits and bobs for us to use on our repairs. I left with confidence to take the skills I learnt further on my own and will definitely being doing another workshop with her.
