Banjara Inspirations – Part One

Linda looks to the traditional textiles of the Banjara for inspiration. Join her to look at some examples and to study the colours, techniques and patterns of these decorative and heavily stitched cloths. Using them as inspiration, Linda demonstrates how you can start your own stitched cloth in the Banjara style.

You will need:

  • A very simply pieced top. Linda used a loose weave linen fabric.
  • Backing fabric
  • Single strand embroidery threads
  • Cowrie shells (optional)
  • Basic sewing kit to include a chenille needle
  • Fabric for binding

Approximate run time: 12 minutes
