In this workshop led by embroidery specialist Rafia Shafiq, students will learn about Phulkari, a traditional geometric stitch technique from Northern Pakistan & India. Each student will follow a design provided by the instructor and select their own modern color palette. They will also learn about the history, origin, stories and different connotations of Phulkari embroidery through Rafia's own journey and research. At the end of the class, students will take their embroidered hoop home which will be perfect for wall decor!
*Important to bring glasses because Phulkari is done by
counting threads on the reverse side of the fabric.
