    What is this workshop about?

    Kanitel workshop started in 2016 in Saint Petersburg as an association of friends who were interested in making useful and beautiful things using their handprinting and sewing skills. Now there are three girls caring about ecology, individuality and life comfort.
    We try to make something that would replace disposables being not only practical but also good-looking. We respect the principals of the horizontal managenent, where every person in the workshop participates in the ruling process. In our work we often use upcycling and recycling. Worn jeans, old shirts and vintage fabrics belonging to our grandmothers take part in the creative process. We like performing unusual request that would be one and only for our clients.
    Speaking of printing techniques, we use stencil printing and linocut. All the stencils and templates are reusable, which allows us to make small series. There are themes repeating in our creation process - nature, plants and animals, self-care and tolerance.
    Kanitel workshop participated in local markets and exhibitions dedicated to ecology and feminist art. We are supporting local initiatives that we find close to us and our ideas. At the moment we cooperate with several zero-waste stores in Saint Petersburg.
