Event Details

One of the pillars of fashion sustainability is supporting artisans through fair pay. Get a front seat to appreciating – and learning – the artistry and diligence behind traditional craftsmanship. Kala Tarang presents workshops on 3 Indian embroideries – Lambani, Ahir Mirrorwork and Meghwal Patchwork Applique by traditional artisans led by Laila Tyabji.

Shanthi Bai and Lakshmi Bai – 2 artisans from Sandur Kushal Kala Kendra, an NGO working with traditional Lambani women in the Bellary District of North Karnataka, will conduct the hands-on workshops under the supervision of Laila Tyabji, herself a passionate embroiderer. Shanthi (winner of the National Master Craftsperson Award in 2001) and Lakshmi are both experienced embroiders who have conducted workshops around the world. They will take the participants through the basic stitches and every participant will have a practice run on a piece of cloth with printed motifs. After the participants are comfortable with the stitches, they will move onto creating a final embroidery piece to take home.
