About Ina Lienen

Ina Lienen, Mondgöttin

Ina Lienen, Mondgöttin

Ina Lienen started sewing in 2010. At first she only sewed her own clothes and altered clothes she found in second-hand shops. Only later did she start sewing bags. After a short time, she implemented her own ideas and sold the sewn bags and accessories on Dawanda. In 2015, she founded the Mondgöttin DesignManufaktur. As the interest in her cuts, which she used for the bags, grew, she published her first patterns in 2017. In the meantime, there are more than 25 patterns that she offers in her shop. In 2019, she also launched her Youtube channel, which is all about sewing, DIY and upcycling.


Embroidered patches: This is how your clothes become unique, your accessories become unmistakable one-of-a-kind pieces

Louise Lemke

Im Workshop gestalten die Teilnehmer:innen mit Sticknadel und Sticktwist einen individuellen Aufnäher / Patch für ihre Kleidung oder Taschen. Die floralen Motive werden mithilfe einer Vorlage auf das Grundmaterial gestickt und anschließend in Form geschnitten. Optional kann der Patch mit einer Sicherheitsnadel versehen werden, sodass man ihn direkt an die Kleidung pinnen kann.

Weaving in wooden ring: create wall hanging with abstract geometric weaving pattern

Weaving in a wooden ring

"Weaving in a wooden ring": You need a weaving frame to weave? Not at all! This course shows how to weave a geometric pattern in a wooden ring. Participants work with overlapping surfaces and colour contrasts and easily learn the knotting and weaving technique to create an artistic DIY mural.

The course uses bamboo rings and coloured cotton yarn, which are cut and unravelled to create the perfect frame. In addition, the participants receive an instruction booklet in which the most important contents of the workshop are again recorded.

About Zak a dit

Zak a dit

Zak a dit

Zak lives in Paris in the 18th arrondissement and loves his neighborhood as much as the atmosphere, the colors, the different cultures, the fashions, the laughter of the children in the park, the people talking on the terrace, the graffiti on my way to dance school...When he was a boy, he lived in the countryside. He loved his childhood! He didn't has many toys so he had to draw them, invent them, imagine them... He played with dolls with his little sisters and they made dresses for them with the curtains that he cut discreetly behind his mother's back... He even stolen towels from the kitchen and collected everything he could to create a new world. Later, he took art classes and then learned to knit and crochet. Today, in his universe, he likes to mix all these techniques.

He always have a cup of coffee on his desk, more or less hot, there are plenty of markers and colored pencils, he has countless sketchbooks and little notes everywhere, his cupboards are full of wool and the shelves are overflowing with fabrics… He is surrounded by colors, flowers, birds and people who laugh a lot! He actually laughs a lot. Dancing, sharing, drawing, knitting, crocheting and sewing are his daily hobbies ! Every day, through social media, he tries to share the love of making and the hapinesse of being a crafter.
