Weaver’s Service Centre – JD Institute
“Learning is Experience. Everything else is just information” – Albert Einstein
In its continuous endeavour to provide learning through experience, JD Institute, Delhi organised a visit to the Weaver’s Service Centre, Delhi on 13th December. The aim was to make the students understand basics of weaving in a practical manner. It was a wholesome experience for the students as the centre had sections not just for weaving but also, designing, spinning, block printing, dyeing and documentation. Experienced weavers & artisans demonstrated their skills. Each process was explained in detail and students were equally participative and asked a lot of questions to clarify their concepts. They also got a chance to try the techniques themselves.
Mr Vikash Kumar, Assistant Director, National Centre for Textile Design ( NCTD), also made students aware of the internship opportunities available at Weaver’s Service Centre. Students came back fortified with better understanding and appreciation of the entire textile development process. Happy Students, Happy Us!!
