Service Description

An opportunity to look at the wonderful embroidery produced by the Banjara who are a nomadic people found throughout India. Banjara designs are all geometric repeats of squares, circles and triangles often with ingenious colour changes and almost always embellished with cowrie shells. Much of their embroidery uses chain stitch and a raised satin stitch as well as counted stitchwork which on fine fabric resembles weaving. You’ll be able to study a wide range of traditional Banjara embroidery and then have a go at recreating some of their lovely work. All materials and notes included.
