This new series of workshops pairs traditional textile techniques with a traditional garment form.
Our first offering in the series leads participants through block printing garment pieces for a kurta, the traditional South Asian shirt. Students will use beautiful traditional blocks as they explore the complexities of repeat patterning with block print artist Munira Amin. The second part of the workshop, led by Ulrike Catalino, a fashion designer with many years of New York industry experience, will take students through the process of sewing and finishing their own kurta.
Please bring your own sewing machine. Basic sewing skills are recommended.
