Petra Bartels, Design – Art – Textiles
After my studies in fashion-design in Berlin and Northern Ireland, I moved to Italy in 1997 and I worked some years as a designer in the Italian fashion-industry.
After the birth of my daughter Greta in 2000, I decided to define my work differently. Since that time I have designed and realized custom-made clothes in natural and organic fabrics (linen, cotton, wool, silk,etc.).
I have experience in personal cloth-design, like wedding-dresses, costumes for theatre and dance-pieces, felt-objects, paintings with fabrics and color. My passion for textile surfaces and their natural origin, always offers me new ways of expression.
I give workshops because I like interacting with people, the creative process and the work in a small group.
