The Scottish Ornithologists’ Club (SOC) based at Waterston House in Aberlady is delighted to welcome back Kalamkari from 13 January to 14 February 2018.

Kalamkari has built a strong reputation for exhibiting high-quality creative textiles. The six founding members met while studying City and Guilds Creative Textiles at Dundee College and on graduating decided to create a formal group to exhibit their work. Dundee’s textile heritage and its historic link with India through the Jute industry led to the name of the group being Kalamkari, an Indian technique of painting and dyeing cloth.

Since the group’s inaugural exhibition in 2007, Kalamkari now has nine members, exhibiting in both Scotland and Northern Ireland. Individual members of the group have also exhibited with the Scottish textile art group, Edge, and at the Pittenweem art festival, and several are involved in teaching and mentoring.

The upcoming show will be the group’s second exhibition at The Scottish Ornithologists’ Club (SOC)’s Waterston House in Aberlady. On this occasion the artists have themed their work around nature, with many pieces featuring birds and flowers.
