Dorothy Mary Larcher was born on 28th September 1882 in St Pancras, London, the (presumed) only child of a schoolmaster William Larcher and his wife, Eliza. (No. 1) Larcher studied fine art at Hornsey School of Art, London, where she later taught. In 1914 Larcher accompanied Lady Herringham to India to help record the Buddhist frescoes in the Ajanta caves. Subsequently, she taught and lived with an Indian family in Calcutta, as the outbreak of war prevented her return to England until 1921. It was in India that she first saw textiles being printed by hand.
