Kantha Practical Course

Learn the ancient art of Kantha embroidery.


Kantha is used to describe both the embroideries created as well as the stitch used to create them, a simple running stitch. It is used to create utilitarian items such as bedcovers, shawls and bags. Although the materials and technique are humble, Kantha embroidery is often very fine and the designs sophisticated. After an introduction to Kantha design and technique, students will create their own original design. Open to all skill levels. In the Studio
