VTC Design Alumni Association (VTCDAA) organised a Workshop on Handmade Embroidery before Lunar New Year. 12 design alumni joined the activity.
Embroidery is broadly used in the contemporary fashion design. Ms Karen Ling, a veteran embroidery master, was invited to give a brief introduction on the cultural background and application of embroidery in fashion design.
During the 4-hour workshop, in addition to sharing knowledge and techniques with alumni, Karen demonstrated the essential skills of handmade embroidery new year scroll. Ensuing this, Karen assisted alumni to apply the stitching techniques they had just learnt, to make a new year scroll on their own.
All participants enjoyed the workshop very much. It was indeed a joyful and fruitful afternoon for these design alumni to foster relationships, to network with each other through this valuable opportunity.
