About me
Wiktoria Godzik is a textiles designer who specialises in intricate, eccentric, hand and digital embroidery. As a versatile designer, her illustrative hand drawing skills have allowed her to combine stitch with digital print processes. Wiktoria has spent the past three years at the Arts University Bournemouth, studying and exploring CAD design and embroidery alongside specialist hand embellishment. In the professional world she has aimed her design experiences at stitch, with internships at studios such as Hand & Lock and Hawthorne & Heaney . Her work has been recognised in the design industry, with a sponsorship from Maderia UK and a shortlist for the 2020- 2021 Batsford prize.
