This was a two day workshop covering 'Sheesha', 'Kantha' and 'Pulkari'
Surjeet was the most inspiring teacher. She combined stories of her life in India to give us an insight into the geography, history and culture of her country.
We all felt that life would not be complete without visiting this amazing place.
We spent the first day applying 'Sheesha' mirrors to fabric. Let me tell you it is quite fiddly and Surjeet made it look so easy!
Finally I managed, and as she said 'the penny needs to drop'.
The rest of the time we worked on Kantha And Pulkari. I'll show you some of that another time.
I so wanted to play with the mirrors using some cream dupion silk and matching threads.
I've had some little notebooks for a while waiting to have a nice cover made, so heres what I did.
I had a lovely couple of hours stitching and thought it was pretty enough to keep your secrets in so you'll find it in my Folksy shop.
