Birmingham's People No 2 – Mrs Kaur

Mrs Kaur is a very beautiful woman – that much is evident from the photo.
What you can’t tell from the photo is that Mrs Kaur is an incredibly talented craftsperson, who has spent her life promoting rangoli and textile art and encouraging people’s creativity. Rangoli is the art of creating floor paintings with coloured sand – or flowers, or other objects.

During Artsfest, Mrs Kaur occupied the space next to ours and encouraged participants to make beautiful printed fabric pieces. We encouraged her to come and have her photo taken. Happily she obliged.
