We are very excited to have Rosemary Little as our speaker for the March meeting [Sat 5th in our usual venue], on the topic of ‘Indian inspiration’, sounds intriguing.
In the afternoon, after our monthly meeting, we have the opportunity to attend a half-day workshop with Rose [that’s Sat afternoon 5th Mar – from 2:00 in the Slemish Room.] The cost of the workshop will be £12.50. There are places if you want to attend.
The topic will be Kantha Embroidery, though you may find the term ‘Embroidery’ slightly misleading. There are similarities to Japanese quilting and kantha makes for a very decorative and interesting fabric. Originating in Bangladesh, it is a traditional technique of embroidered quilting, constructed with several layers of recycled white cotton fabric and simple embroidery stitches to create a graphic, richly textured surface.
