Textile Center, in collaboration with Khazana Arts and Textiles, is thrilled to welcome Hemangini Rathore — acclaimed textile designer and founder of Sudarshan artist collective — to the Twin Cities from Jaipur, Rajasthan, India for a 3-day Guest Teaching Artist workshop. Learn from Hemangini how to create one of Sudarshan’s iconic hand-dyed, -printed, and -stitched garments. Hemangini will guide participants through her surface design process of modifying traditional motifs and layering techniques to create prints with a contemporary aesthetic. Participants will spend the first two days creating their own fabric print that will be turned into a kimono-style shirt or short kaftan on the third day of the workshop. Utilizing multiple techniques drawn from the rich traditions of folk textiles from India including tie-dye, block printing, and hand-stitching, workshop participants will create a one-of-a-kind garment.

In conjunction with this special Guest Teaching Artist workshop, Khazana Arts and Textiles will host a trunk show of garments and accessories made by Sudarshan as well as a community conversation with Hemangini. For additional information about these related programs, please visit
