Season 1 “Kanyakumari se Kashmir tak - Ek Sari-torial Safar”.
Episode 2: “Know your Kalamkaris“
Filmed in 2 parts.

Touring Talkies moves this week to Andhra where we learn about the jaw dropping & laborious art form of the hand painted Kalamkari. As always, there are a lot of myths & half truths out there on this traditional art form & who better than an actual practicing expert with over 23 years of experience in hand painted Kalamkaris to demystify this?

Our Expert Guest Speaker today is Mamata Reddy from KalamCreations by Mamata Reddy. Mamata has in the last 2 decades effortlessly blended traditional textiles, motifs & weaves with simplicity, innovative & contemporary designs. Her work with leading fashion designers like Gaurang Shah, Sabyasachi, Shashikant Naidu to name just a few has won her applause from Indian & International audiences.

With true knowledge & experience comes humility & Mamata personifies this.
