The Weather Report
More of the Indian exhibition 2

Past Exhibition

Back a few weeks ago, (a month ago), in fact back when I went to the Marvel Exhibition, which I want to go to again,  I saw a small display of Indian Embroidery in the main gallery.  (That was a mouthfull. )  It was only because I ran into some friends from the Embroiderers' Guild that I was alerted to the fact that it was the last day it would be on display.

The exhibition was called "weavers, Wanderers".  (Click on the images for a larger version.)

What I found remarkable about this exhibition was the level of skill on display.  I have seen quite a lot of Indian embroidery but these pieces, besides being beautiful in design were also beautifully stitched.  There were 2 quilts on display.

Any one of these squares would make a great embroidery.

The second is appliqued and embroidered.

There was also a black and white photo of a house which had been decorated with hand painted images.  Lots of design ideas in these three pieces.

I was also struck by the similarity between the women painted on the left of the photo and folk embroideries I have seen from Sweden.

I will write a post about some of the other pieces at a later date.
