Silver jewellery making – At the end your ring will be weighed – there is an additional cost for the silver which is approximately 80 rupees per gram. The average ring weighs around 6 grams. (equivalent to approx AUD10)
Silver jewellery – you will be making a ring today! Our master jeweller Shyam will guide you through the process of heat treating, shaping, soldering and stamping a design on your silver ring.
Marquetry – You’ll have several designs to choose from and our expert marquetry artisan Ashok will teach you how to choose wood according to grain and colour appropriate for your design. By the end of the day you’ll have learnt how to work with a fret saw, cutting out your own pieces and putting it all together like a jigsaw puzzle to make your very own piece of marquetry.
Textile Block Printing – After an introduction to block printing and a demonstration of the technique, you’ll be able to let your imagination run wild! With hundreds of blocks to choose from you can create endless designs. You’ll be given a test fabric to start with, and a shawl and tote bag to print and take home. Extra’s will be available to purchase if you wish to print more bags/shawls.
We encourage you to bring along some of your own fabric or t-shirts to print. Keep in mind the fabric must be 100% natural fibres or the colour won’t take. To ensure everyone has enough space to work in, please don’t bring anything larger than 200cm in length and 55cm wide.
