Last weekend I travelled from my humble student abode in Leeds, into the wilderness of Scotland...St Andrews! After a jam-packed weekend of incredible speakers and eye-opening topics of discussion, I'm so pleased to say that my workshop was a huge, nakedness-filled success!
I met the queen of body-confidence, Danni, who is the founder of the Cha Chi Power Project: "My name is Danni. I started The Chachi Power Project in January 2017 to promote body positivity and to encourage everyone to improve their body confidence. I think learning to like, or even love, your own body can change your world and in turn, you might be able to change THE WHOLE WORLD" . Expect a blog post about this energising woman, who oozes self-confidence, very soon!
Thanks for having me, St Andrews Sexpression!
The process is wildly empowering and humbling and many women have chosen to do this as part of their self-development to become super confident and loving of their own bodies. The process takes from 1-2 weeks, as each commission is completely unique. Purchase your nude commission here
The images below have been shared with the consent of the women they are based on
1) When you're ready, you can send me a relaxed nude or semi-nude photo via email, Instagram or Whatsapp. This photo is stored in a passcode-protected and hidden file and is deleted after stage 2.
2) I translate every curve of your unique body into a line drawing that provides the blueprints for the final embroidery. You're turned into a piece of art!
3) You choose where you would like the line drawing to be hand-embroidered. A popular choice is a sweatshirt since the most empowering thing is wearing yourself, baring all and being unapologetic for it. I can hand-embroider onto a tote bag, a sweatshirt, a tee, a cushion or onto a fabric in a decorative hoop (perfect for hanging on the wall).
I will never share your design without your enthusiastic and explicit permission. It may be a personal journey for your eyes only and that is absolutely possible.
