Have you ever wondered how to bring an object to life? In this special workshop, we will learn how to create a soft sculpture that will incorporate your own personality through an organic hand sewing process. Each person has a unique vision of the world and we will discuss ways this can be translated into what you create. We’ll learn about composition through fabric and color choices, balance patterns and textures and discover special solutions through hand sewing techniques. We will stretch your imagination, think out of the box, look at things from different perspectives and most importantly, play! Wonderful fabric birdcages or fishbowls will be created in this class, so I invite you to come open your minds, hearts and imagination and bring your ideas to life!

Born and raised in Israel, Tamar found her way to New York City, where she began a graphics and art program at the School of Visual Arts. In 2001, after completing her degree in Israel, Tamar decided to move permanently to NYC. Born into a highly creative family, Tamar was encouraged to make gifts by hand and greatly enjoyed crafting animals. A flair for floral arrangements and gardening helped Tamar pay for her education. She worked at a flower store in Nolita, NYC, until her own company began to grow. She is now stitching full time in her Brooklyn studio, creating magical bird cages, watchful owls, parading peacocks or flirty pearls, each with unique charm and European flair. Her work is featured in stores, galleries and publications all around the world, including the New York Times, Selvedge, Sweet Paul and Overflow Magazine.
