ISTA stands equally for tradition and contemporary textile design with needle and thread. For beginners and advanced.
We do not promise you that you will learn professional needlework in a few weeks. Our goal is to show you textile design, especially needlework, so that you know exactly why something is worked in which way. This is the basis for unique designs and excellent rsults. For this reason, we are not primarily concerned with finished objects, but with techniques.
The seminars mainly work with the diverse materials of the Painters Threads Collection.

Passion inside you burns so strongly, that the problematic side, which an independence in this area includes, elicits a "I want and can do it"? Then click on the button.
