WORKSHOPS

This two-week residential program will introduce students to nine different crafts of this city. A typical day will start at 9 a.m., with a three-hour workshop after breakfast. Lunch will be followed by another workshop, or heritage visit. Evenings are left free, for participants to rest, read, write or explore the city by themselves, before they assemble again for dinner. Over the fortnight, participants will be treated to guided walks through the meandering lanes of the old walled city, they will have the opportunity to savour local delicacies, visit sand dunes, perform morning yoga, enjoy camel rides, and dance to the desert tunes with local musicians and folk dancers. A water trail, visits to the numerous step-wells in the city, visits to Mehrangarh Fort and Umaid Bhawan Palace and an evening of shopping in the local markets are all included in the itinerary. The program will culminate with an interactive session at the end of the two weeks, with a retrospective debate and an exhibition of products made during the workshops.
