Phulkari: Then and Now

Page Content: 

Building on Saima Kaur's article ‘Phulkaris: Threads of Memory’ this webinar is an opportunity to understand them through visual examples old and new as well as materials and methods of production. The webinar also explores contemporary trends in India and abroad by sharing case studies of textiles artists, collectors, and small businesses.

**Please note: The recording of this webinar began several minutes into the presentation so the introduction to Phulkari is unfortunately missing. There is still so much of Saima's presentation to enjoy so we wanted to make it available to members in its truncated form. We hope you enjoy it!**
