HELEN PHILLIPS - The Master Craftsmen of Kashmir
Helen Philips, (Door to the Himalayas) Will be giving a talk and showing examples of textiles from Kashmir, some of which will be available to buy.
"How long this tradition will continue depends very much on the ability to bring these shawls to a wider market. The current political isolation for Kashmir has resulted in very few tourists visiting the region."
Do not forget to bring your pennies (or lots of pounds!) as Helen will be selling some exquisite items. See her website on http://www.doortothehimalayas.co.uk/himalayancommunities/kashmiri-craftsmen
