Rosemary Crill on Mochi Embroideries of Gujarat

We live in an age where the art of hand-woven textiles and embroidery is being replaced by digitally mass-produced cloth. We’re losing the age-old knowledge and skill of craftsmen, whose legacy goes back hundreds of years, a legacy which put Indian handicrafts on the map of the world.
Join our live session with curator and author Rosemary Crill, who pays tribute to the unnamed masters of exquisite, regional stitch craft known as mochi-bharat - embroidery created by Mochis, in her book The Shoemaker’s Stitch.
