During TaDA residency I was teaching Design to the Basic Year students of Gerrit Rietveld Academy online. At this course I introduced them to the techniques of embroidery, with the goal to develop a typeface & Mustertuch together. Each student was invited to design a letter in order to create a contemporary embroidery alphabet. It got stitched on a 5,2 m long cotton fabric with an embroidery machine.
