World embroidery workshop: Kantha from West Bengal and Bangladesh, Ilkley


Create a card using traditional Kantha work, choose a flower or animal and enjoy the relaxing rhythm of stitching.

Helen takes us with her on her world tour of embroidery, as she teaches the skills she brought back. Others in the World Embroidery Series include Vietnamese embroidery, Japanese Sashiko embroidery & Shisha mirror work from India & Pakistan – see 'More from this Maker' for details and booking.
