Elizabethan Echoes 

(Kantha workshop)

 

 

This workshop is inspired by Elizabethan style flowers, insects etc.

 

It combines the stylised motifs of Elizabethan embroidery with the rhythmic hand stitching found in the Kanthas of Bangladesh and West Bengal, where patterns and texture are created to great effect using simple embroidery stitches.

 

The use of a sewing machine will speed up one part of the process but this workshop can be completed without using a sewing machine.
