The Art of Traditional Quilt Making BuDa with Nirmalakka—3-Day Workshop@ Bangalore
Mark your calendars! Due to countless requests, Nirmalakka will be returning to Bangalore to present her 3-Day Quilting Workshop from Buda folklore.
Quilts and other-cloth-based narratives are part of many cultures. Nirmalakka, who works with buDa folklore uses her expertise in needle craft to make traditional quilts that have passed down from mothers to daughters from generation to generation. She will not only share her techniques and patterns in the process of stitching these traditional fabrics, but also share her customs and colourful heritage with you.
Now you can also have the opportunity to join Nirmalakka; and with her guidance, you also can appreciate this old, magnificent tradition while weaving your own stories through fabric. Please join us—whether you are a novice or an expert in quilt creations. You will enjoy spending time with Nirmalakka and making a mini quilt of your own.
The details are given below, but please contact us directly for further information and registration. Due to the intimate, hands-on process of quilting, we do have limited space; however, we would love for you and your friends to join us.
