Rachna trained at the prestigious National Institute of Design in India and The Royal School of Needlework in London. Her work predominantly involves hand embroidery and weaving. Her visual language continues to evolve, combining echoes of her life in India with the experience of living in London for the past 13 years.
Material exploration and collaging unexpected textures together in a warp have always been the starting point for Rachna's work. She juxtaposes cotton, linen, silk and wool with found materials like paper, bark, seedpods, twigs etc. All her works are unique and bespoke; each one takes shape slowly in her studio and is later crafted into screens, space dividers and framed textile art.
