Embellished Talk is a space to explore textiles through digital content and creative workshops. Founded in 2016 by textiles designer Rebeckah Kemi Apara. Rebeckah graduated with a degree in Fashion Textiles from the London College of Fashion in 2007 and specialised in silk screen printing. After graduating Rebeckah taught herself how to hand sew using embroidery and embellishments.
With her platform, she has collaborated with the not-for- profit organisation GURLS TALK, founded by fashion model Adwoa Aboah and hand embroidered their t-shirts to raise money for The Baytree Centre. She runs hands on creative workshops where attendees learn the craft of embellishment and embroidery.
Previous workshops have taken place in London Fields Primary School, WAH Nails, West Elm, WeWork, Second Home, Boxpark Shoreditch, Warehouse and the perfectly pink café Palm Vaults. Rebeckah likes to run her workshops in exciting, inspiring and approachable venues.
Rebeckah teaches all levels from beginner to advanced.
