2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

Hand fan (Pankha) making with Nudrat Alexander Mughal

Create your own hand fan out of paper, wooden sticks, and a selection of decorative trimmings!

These fans are inspired by the hand fans (traditionally known as ‘Pankha’ – a hand fan used in summer) used in South Asia.

Perfect for little ones with the help of an adult!

Nudrat uses combination of traditional craft with contemporary techniques. Using her textiles and craft skills, she creates items that are a mixture of textures, patterns, and colours.
