Event Description

Nool Koota stories or ‘yarn about yarn’ with Sandhya Srinivasan

People from the different Malhar communities are part of a group of beginner and experienced crocheters and knitters, collectively called the ‘Nool Koota’. The group came together initially to make woollens for premature babies in a hospital in Jharkhand, but are now making everything from doilies to blankets to octopii to Christmas decorations. We have been meeting for the past 3 years, once a week regularly before the pandemic, and then a few times online, and now have restarted our sessions at the Courtyard. The pleasure of sitting with a group of people and sharing lots of laughter while hard at work creating something with yarn is something everyone has learnt to appreciate, and it makes people come back for more each week. We had just one man with us for a while and now we are a group of women but we are still, with hope, using the word ‘people’ instead of ‘women’. With a bigger group, we hope to add a few evening sessions too. During this session, you will see some of our creations and hear some of our yarns about yarn.

Cost: INR 100
