Stitching Workshop - Morning 10 am start

Join us for a unique and immersive two-hour stitching workshop led by two talented Porgai artisans, Thakulam and Vaideshwari, as they share the traditional embroidery stitches from the Lambadi tribe repertoire.

As you enter the workshop space, you are greeted by the vibrant colors of threads and fabrics that adorn the room, setting the stage for a creative and culturally enriching experience. Thakulam and Vaideshwari, with years of expertise in Lambadi embroidery, welcome you with warm smiles and a genuine eagerness to share their craft.

With gentle guidance and patient instruction, Thakulam and Vaideshwari introduce you to the intricate and beautiful stitches that form the backbone of Lambadi embroidery. You watch in awe as their skilled hands effortlessly weave through fabric, creating stunning patterns and designs that tell stories of tradition and heritage.

As you pick up your needle and thread, you feel a sense of connection to the rich history and craftsmanship passed down through generations. Thakulam and Vaideshwari are generous with their knowledge, teaching you not just how to stitch, but also the significance behind each motif and pattern.

Two hours fly by in a blur of creativity and learning, as you immerse yourself in the art of Lambadi embroidery under the expert guidance of Thakulam and Vaideshwari. By the end of the workshop, you not only leave with a beautiful embroidered piece to cherish but also a newfound appreciation for the skill, artistry, and cultural heritage of the Lambadi tribe.
