The Registry of Sarees Research and Study Centre, which recently installed table-top looms at its premises, is all set to host a handloom weaving course . So if you’ve ever wondered what goes into the making of the garment that is unique to India, this is where you can sign up. The workshop will be held over two weeks and put students under the guidance of experienced weavers who will teach them everything from winding a warp, dressing a loom and threading heddles to reeding and tying a warp. 

Each student will be assigned their own individual loom on which they can practise creating patterns on different material. They will also be given a workbook and a manual. 

While the first five days will focus on practising different types of weaves and techniques, the second half of the workshop will cover creating free-flowing fabric, a scarf, a stole or a work of art. On July 20th, they will be taken on a field trip where they will gain an understanding of how the loom  works and the logistics of pre-loom work and weaving.

Ideal for beginners or intermediary weavers, this workshop accepts just five students, who will also have access to The Registry of Sarees’  library of weaving books.

Rs.25,000++. July 15-26. At The Registry of Sarees, Domlur
