Needlepoint Initiation Workshop with Cristina Cerqueira, from unwind studio Instagram: www.instagram.com/unwind.studio Website: www.unwind.studio
Cristina has a passion for Needlepoint and created the unwind studio project, where Design and Illustration intersect with Needlepoint, modernizing this art!
There is something magical about taking the time to create something with our hands. Slow down, relax and create!
At unwind studio, we want to change the way people perceive crafts, our mission is closely linked to the Bauhaus School Manifesto, as we also believe that there are no barriers between crafts and sculpture or painting: they all have the same goal - to create!
We collaborate with artists from around the world, supporting and publicizing their work through Needlepoint kits.
