My Domestika adventure

wire crochet course at Domestika

Last December, I embarked on an exciting adventure to Madrid, a trip filled with anticipation and the thrill of sharing my craft. This journey wasn't just a visit; it was an opportunity to film an online class with Domestika, showcasing my unique wire crochet technique. The preparation for this project took months, involving a team of experts who guided me every step of the way. The experience was incredibly professional, and it was reassuring to know I was in hands that had crafted many successful courses before.

Upon arriving in Madrid, my stay at the hotel offered an unexpected but delightful twist. It didn't take long for me to spot the other artists who were there to film their classes. Their artistic aura was unmistakable, and it was somewhat amusing to try and guess their specialties. Among them were three talented women, each with their own unique artistic journey, and one guy who stood out just as much. Being someone who enjoys meeting new people, I couldn't resist the urge to connect with these fellow artists.

One of the first artists I met was Tati Abaurre, a Brazilian who grew up in Canada and specializes in pattern illustrations. Then there was Maria Rosua, an Argentinian metalsmith living on the enchanting island of Formentera in Spain, known for her colored figurative jewelry. Lastly, I encountered Monique Peres, a Brazilian tattoo artist living in Aix-en-Provence, France, whose tattoos were as impressive as her personality.

Our time in Madrid wasn't without its challenges. We faced minor crises like peeling lacquer and disappearing fake fingernails, and experiences with the filming process varied. I didn't have a monitor, which made delivering my speeches a bit more adventurous, but it all added to the experience. Despite the glamour, it was a significant adjustment for me. Being filmed and photographed, relinquishing control over the final product, and navigating the experience mostly on my own were all new challenges. Yet, the all-female production team was a source of support, reminding me of the strength and talent of young women today.

Reflecting on the experience, I realize how much trust I placed in the Domestika team, especially since I haven't seen the final course until one week before it went live. The rainy weather in Madrid was a bit of a dampener, limiting my explorations of the city. However, despite these challenges, I would do it all over again. The chance to meet incredible crafters and share my technique with a global audience is invaluable.

The course is translated into seven languages, making it accessible to a diverse audience. It's not just a class; it's a glimpse into my journey from industrial designer to wire artist and jewelry designer.
