The Shalimar Collection – Weaves from the Valley by Kashmir Loom & Brigitte Singh

Brigitte Singh’s hand-printed textiles are something of a legend; they are widely recognised as being amongst the finest block prints in the world. In fact, the red poppy print that launched her career is permanently on view at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

Kashmir Loom, a young company from the Kashmir Valley is the labour of love of textile historian Jenny Housego and her Kashmiri partner Asaf Ali and his brothers in Srinagar. Along with a team of brilliant weavers and embroiderers, Kashmir Loom is giving new life to the traditional vocabulary through constant innovation, resulting in a unique collection of shawls, scarves and throws.

Thurs 29 Nov – Sun 4 Dec 2016, 11am – 7pm: Shruti Nelson’s fantastical portrayals of nature are well known, but in her latest exhibition ‘The Whispering Garden’ curated by Jasmine Shah Varma opening in November at ARTISANS’, it almost seems as if she is reaching out into nature. With techniques of printing and painting in natural dyes on silk stoles, we see the artist’s innate engagement with nature, going beyond traditional methods to find a contemporary connect.
