Art Form

Chikankari

Chikankari is one of India’s popular and centuries old hand embroidery practiced by a large urban craft community in Lucknow. The art of Chikankari thrived during the rule of Nawabs of Awadh, subsequently shifting to Lucknow, but lost favour during the British era. But it regained its control post-Independence.  Chikanwork is a pure art form of Central India that has been widely explored in clothes and household items ranging from pastels to brilliant hues. Following in the footsteps of the past, the Muslim population continues to dominate the Chikan art.

LIVE workshops happen in real time over zoom along with the Master Artist and a small group. Live workshops have different levels.
