Follow Margherita Pandolfini and Karl Jorns through Florence’s historic, Medici-founded botanical gardens and into the world of handmade, botanical-inspired textiles.
Break up the frantic pace of Florentine museum-hopping with a peaceful morning surrounded by beautiful blooms and a creative, hands-on textile-painting experience in a private palazzo. Have fun, get colourful and let your nature-inspired creativity loose: you’ll walk away with botanical knowledge, a new skill and a one-of-a-kind, handmade-in-Florence work of textile art.
Margherita Pandolfini and Karl Jorns
Florence-born Margherita Pandolfini has travelled the world; studied fashion, textiles and sculpture in London; and worked for art galleries and fashion designers. She moved back to her native Italy to focus on textiles. There, she met Karl and together they established La Serra MK Textile Atelier in 2009. Karl Jorns was born in Colombia, began his career in Brazil in theatre costumes and fashion and moved to Florence to study at the prestigious Polimoda, where he now lectures and teaches textile painting and design.
