Vidushi Chenna (b.1997) is a weaver and designer with experience working with grassroots artisans in India. She belongs to a weaving community in India. Despite coming from a family that traditionally practised handweaving in history, she never realised it until her later years.
Her work is influenced by local and sustainable community practices, Indian philosophies and storytelling. Vidushi explores traditional textile techniques, and ancient art forms and incorporates contemporary concepts and narratives that challenge ethical and environmental concerns.
Her practice led to research, understanding value chains, and working with natural and agricultural materials from around the world, both globally and glocally.
Prior to studying MA Textiles with specialising in Weave at the Royal College of Art, she graduated from the National Institute of Design, India in Textile and Apparel Design.
