About this activity
You will be picked up from your hotel within the city center and will be escorted in your air-conditioned vehicle to the workshop.

Get an intricate understanding of how Threads of Lucknow works. Chikan for example, is an art that provides livelihood to so many women in and around Lucknow, empowers them to be a part of the thriving local economy, supplements their household income and above all keeps the traditional craft alive. Men contribute their finesse to other forms of embroidery, Zari and Aari in particular. These are mostly done at the small studios within the homes of designers, on big wooden frames with many men working together on a single piece to churn out an exquisite example of craft.

The embroidery industry has bound Hindus and Muslims together in Lucknow, the result of a delicate economic relationship shared by them. The Hindu trading community, referred to as Rastogis, sell the embroidered craft, while Muslims are involved as craftsmen.

You will learn details about this craft from the men and women at a Workshop on a half-day, hands-on experiential sojourn.

Each guest gets a personal embroidery kit to learn the craft, a talk is delivered by a designer and guests are taught this the embroidery. Also enjoy a home cooked Vegetarian Rastogi Lunch (Beverage Excluded).

Once your session ends you will be driven back to your hotel within the city center.
