From Place To Space: Creativity in Munich

10 February 2013 0


A little while ago I attended a creative workshop organized by the DIY selling platform Dawanda in a cute little café in Munich. Café Lotti is the right place for romantic souls with a passion for baby pink. Well, I went there for the first time for the creative workshop and I was predominately convinced by the good coffee and the delicious homemade cakes. But I wasn’t there to only indulge in the yummy offerings or ponder over baby pink as a wall paint – during the workshop I was challenged as a DIY person. 

Truth be told, I am not a big DIY person. I just think I am not that handy when it comes to those filigree works. However, I tried my best and activated every creative cell in my body in a paper workshop organized by Makaba Design. Back then, I made my first Xmas cards. All by myself. I was pretty happy with the outcome and a few friends got my handmade cards – I hope they liked them!

Apart from my cutting and glueing, I walked around the café and snapped photos of the creative peeps. I was really amazed by the creative drive and passion of the attendees – they created lovely stationery, textile works, jewelry and more. Well, I hope this Monday post will kick off a creative week for all of us!

Are you a DIY person? Do you sell your creative work? If so, please tell me in the comment section and share your shop link!

Happy Monday, friends!

    Hey Igor! Fab pics!

    I am also not a DIY person, although I wish I was. I am constantly collecting DIY inspiration in hopes that one day I’ll be brave enough to try…

    Would love to see a pic of your xmas card!

    I am not a DIY-er (most of the time) but sometimes wish I was! I have to say I like you with a mustache, hehe 😉

    I’m not good at DIY either, although the DIYers make it look so easy!

    I loved this, especially your photography.

    I am sure you’re better than you think and you know what, practice makes perfect. Don’t give up.
    Love the moustache!!!

    Not a DIY guy at all… although I do like to paint (as in decorate). That all looks too chaotic to me… I’d need a bottle of wine just to make it through 😉 Well done you for giving it a go.
