The Ajrakh Auction goes to Bowen Island

The Maiwa Foundation is taking its auction
to Bowen Island to raise money for
Project Dhamadka

Saturday May 9th at 3:30 pm 

Join us as we present an afternoon of ravishing textiles. There will be a multi-media presentation and talk by Charllotte Kwon on the Khatri community of traditional blockprinters from Dhamadka, India, and the present water crisis.

The most exciting part of the afternoon will be the live auction of textiles. Exquisite double sided ajrakhs, textiles from the Maiwa Collection, jewellery, and shawls will be sold to the highest bidder.

Please come and support us.

  1. I recently had a tapestry workshop with Maximo Laura in Peru. Just after we left he went to Montreal, Quebec for a workshop. I would really like to see if he could also be brought here to B.C. for a workshop. He is so inspiring and the use of colors and colour blendign was so effective and emminated so much warmth and texture. It was so exhilarating to have been part of his class. I would like more exposure to his techniques. Please consider him for your next symposium. Unni Lorenz from Trollheimen Weaving Studio, 70 Mile House, B.C.
