Live Virtual Workshops
Learn the fine art of Chikankari in these live virtual workshops conducted via Zoom.
The 2-part workshop (6 hours) is spread over a week to accommodate time for practice and catch up.
Saba provides clear demonstrations and instructions to prep your hoop, separate threads, trace patterns and start working on your piece. She helps you to work on your own piece using a practice stitch sampler and a pattern piece.
She will show you ways to incorporate your Chikankari piece into a project.
Recordings of the live sessions will be available to participants for 8 days after each session in case you miss one of them or would like to go over a particular stitch again.
