A lovely opportunity to sit and stitch and be immersed in all of Dorothy's knowledge, and surrounded by her samples from India where she spent her childhood
A COURSE WELL WORTH ATTENDING
With traditional and contemporary examples as your source of inspiration you will begin by layering together cotton fabrics to create a cloth which is colourful, soft and lovely to handle (approximately A4 in size) Then using running stitch to build grids, in a voyage of discovery and invention we will begin to explore decorative border patterns. Finally, we will enjoy quilting any remaining areas with the rippling textures unique to kantha.
The workshop is open to everyone who enjoys hand stitching. It could offer you an introduction to kantha making, another chance to extend your kantha making skills or repertoire of stitches.
