We have many exciting workshops planned at Commune Coworks, Bangalore from 23rd to 26th January 2020, register soon!!!
What was once a mere hobby or interest for the natives of Gujarat has now become a part of the larger picture of what showcases Indian artisanship and culture. By tradition, mirror embroidery was stitched by women living in the villages, who would make clothes for their families and other decorations in order to celebrate various Gujarati festivals and to honor their gods. It was created out of interest and devotion, and not for money-making or profit. However, mirror work today is not restricted to rural landscapes and settings; it has found its way into the urban fashion hub as well and makes style statements not only on clothes but on household decorations and furniture as well. With Indian designs creating a craze all over the world, mirror work is part and parcel of what is considered unique and up-to-the-minute for all the fashion gurus
The workshop will start with understanding the embroidery and the stitches.
