What you'll do
We will start our workshop choosing the specific type of soft toy the guests would like to make. I will offer 2 models. After that, I will explain the basic of patterns, fabric and sewing. We will get to work on cutting, sewing and then stuffing. We will then take a break, for tea and baked goods. Meanwhile, I'll explain and demonstrate simple embroidery for the face details. We will then move on to clothing and finally pose for a few photos with your creations.
I'm a designer and founder of A Mighty Daisy Toy Lab. I studied Industrial Design and have worked in the field of toy design for many years, starting as a Jr. Designer and moving up to the role of creative director of a toy design company. I've lived in New York, Mexico City, London and Bogotá. I moved to Basel 2 years ago, and decided to embark on the journey of self employment. I founded A Mighty Daisy one and half years ago and, I can happily confirm that I am doing what I love the most, lovingly hand making soft toys with natural materials. Every design is simple, touching and unique.
Coffee, tea and baked goods.
Sewing machine and materials
Where you'll be
I will conduct our workshop in my home studio. If the guests are interested we can walk to the oldest Bakery in Basel to get some baked goods and also show them a bit of the neighbourhood.
