This online workshop is an exciting collaboration between Dorothy the tutor, Bobby as technical support and you the students, with time to work on your pieces in between each session.
There will be an introduction to the course on Monday 1 November 2020 from 10am – 11am and following sessions on: Monday 8, 15, 22 and 29 November from 10.00am - 12.30pm
Dorothy will show you some traditional and contemporary examples and processes which will inspire you to stitch a kantha based on your own designs. Flowers and leaves, fruit or seed heads, working tools and everyday objects, animals or birds or fish all provide interesting shapes. Or you could choose to stitch images relating to a particular person, story, location or issue.
Kantha is a Bangladeshi word for cloth and a particular way of stitching embroidered quilts from the good parts of old worn saris. A wealth of kantha designs is eloquently drawn with running stitch. These are filled with pattern and colour, and surrounded with the rippling quilted textures unique to kantha.
