Kantha is a Bangladeshi word for cloth, and a particular way of stitching embroidered quilts made from the good parts of old worn out saris. A wealth designs based on flowers and leaves feature on these quilts, mostly worked in variations of running stitch.
Through patching and piecing together scraps of coloured fabrics we will build a layered cloth approximately A4 in size. Using just running stitch we will add floral designs. And then to bring the textile piece together we will quilt the remaining spaces which will result in creating the rippling textures unique to kantha.
This workshop is open to everyone interested in hand stitching and exploring a contemporary take on Kantha making. If you have attended one of my Kantha courses before, do come to extend your Kantha making skills.
