Imagination Tour Run Utsav Kutch -JD Institute of Fashion Technology Mumbai
India is one of the most ethnically diverse nations, rich in cultural and artistic heritage. Villages in every part of the country practice handicrafts that hold ancient expertise and uniqueness. The JD Institute of Fashion Technology students of Mumbai & Faculty were on a study tour to Gujarat (Kutch). The students explored the splendid archaeological site in Bhachau Taluka of Kutch District, the magnificent White Desert of Kutch and the best example of Art, Crafts and Craftsmanship decorated with bright & rich colours at Calico Museum and at craft villages & various NGO’s like, Khamir, Surjan, Kala Raksha, etc. near Kutch. These students worked on beautiful crafts like organ art, bead and mirror work, wood lacquer turning, silver jewellery smiting, mud and clay work, knife making and bell making. Each craft follows significant techniques and processes that the students got to learn from these authentic craftsmen. When experience meets enthusiasm, a new horizon of opportunities opens. Our young design geniuses looked forward to exploring new possibilities for these crafts to create something new and unique.
