Kawandi With Lorena Uriarte

Kawandi are traditional utility quilts made by the Siddi diaspora in India, who originated from East Africa. Each quilt has a beautiful texture. Traditionally, they are made from clothing and textile scraps, patched and stitched together from the outside to the centre of a foundation piece.

This is a technique class where students will learn the art of Kawandi hand-stitching and the quilt-as-you-go method. This means that you will piece and quilt your sampler at the same time. Once the last piece is stitched down, your quilt is finished! No additional quilting or binding is required!
