Galeecha: Cultural Textiles Design

Galeecha: Cultural Textiles Design is an exhibition presenting work designed by students enrolled in the 2017 Cultural Textiles course which ran in Gujarat, India in January / February 2017. One of the course projects involves students designing for handblock-printed rugs or yardage. Having undertaken a course in Gujarat, India, students translate patterns and motifs of their experience in India into designs for rugs or yardage. Selected designs will be block printed by hand with natural dyes onto cotton dhurrie rugs by Dr Ismail Khatri’s and Sufiyan Khatri’s studios in Ajrakhpur, Kutch, Gujarat, India. Curated by Liz Williamson.
