Kantha Stitch is a straight running stitch that is traditional to Bangladesh and the Bengal region of India. It is used to embellish saris and also epicycle old fabric into quilts.
Often drawing on classic motifs of fish, flora and people, the simple straight stitch is woven into intricate tales and floral designs.
In this workshop you will have the opportunity to work with fabrics and create your own kanthan piece to take home, or, produce a kanthan inspired artwork based on traditional motifs and designs.
Workshop runs alongside WOW Women's Film Club's women only screenings of Made in Bangladesh at The Riverfront, Newport on Saturday 7 March and the National Waterfront Museum Swansea on Saturday 14 March.
