The two-day seminar left both the speakers and the audience enriched with experiences through discussions and deliberations on Kantha. Fifty artisans were invited to interact with prominent personalities who have explored Kantha in a different level of understanding. While the artisans updated the speakers with their hands on experience and fear of treading the niche path. The designers present as speaker and audience instilled them with path breaking solutions to overcome confinements in the mind.

We thank DCHC and NIFT, Kolkata for giving us this fulfilling opportunity and to help us see the traditional craft of Kantha embroidery in a different perspective for the first time NIFT, Kolkata published a book of abstracts, entitled – Kantha Katha containing research and experiments by various speakers. It was indeed a proud moment when Kantha exponent Shamlu Dudeja inaugurated the book before the august gathering. The team has also culminated a collection of full-bodied papers based on these abstracts, which will be published shortly as the final milestone of this project.
