The Quilting Workshop is Back!

Greetings from buDa !! 

Would you like something colourful and bright for your home that you could create on your own ?
If yes , then you should come along for the quilting workshop organised by buDa folklore foundation.

Through this workshop, buDa foundation would like to bring to light the traditional art form of women of Haliyal Village in Uttar Kannada. Women folk here patch pieces of cloth collected over a period of time from near and dear ones to form a quilt. The quilt that is finally put together is gifted by the mother to her daughter during the wedding as a token to remind her of her maternal home.

To know this unique form of creative expression, all you need to know is how to threadle a needle and have the enthusiasm to learn and create. Leave the rest to our master artisans. 

In this workshop, our master artisan Nirmalakka will teach you how to put together your old tailoring bits, laces, sarees and duppatas to use.  She will take you through a step by step process on the simple stitches that you could use to make a nice collage of all the fabric that you have. At the end of the 3 day workshop you would have created a neat and colourful quilt for yourself that you could use to brighten up your living room or perhaps gift it to someone :)
