This is a workshop inspired by the Indian Maharani’s sumpteous private gardens. Theswe gardens were the spaces where they were hidden away in all their finery like jewels in a box. They were surrounded by beautiful trees and flowering plants . Peacocks roamed and exotic birds perched, they watched the world through intricately carved stone windows and strolled through arches which led to cooling fountains and ponds.
This workshop captures the beauty of those scenes, using block printing, faux batik and mixed media on fabric. We will be adding beautiful silk and indian embellishments with embroidery to make your work a truly beautiful piece of art.
Day One : Embroidered and Embellished Peacock
Day Two: Choice of Kantha Stitched Elephant or Block printed and embroidered bird.
Paula will bring a kit for £10 on the day and look to requirements list for what you need to bring. She will also have handmade rag paper books available to buy for £15 should you wish to mount your artwork.
