Weaving Workshop concludes
To impart weaving and design skills to fashion and lifestyle students, a six-day workshop “Tana-Bana” was organised at University Institute of Fashion Technology at Panjab University by a senior faculty Ms. Anu H. Gupta. The inputs for the workshop were provided by the Weaver Service Centre, Panipat of the Ministry of Textiles. Two resource persons – Mr. K.N. Uniyal, a textile technologist and Mr. Sammat Singh an expert weaver taught the students from the basics of practical weaving to creative weaving. Students learnt not only the operation of looms but also the effects created by various types of weaves. They experimented with a variety of yarns and weaves and created beautiful fabric samples.
Shikha Dhir a final year student, inspired by this workshop, is planning to develop products from the skills gained during the workshop. “I will develop a Woolen Stole for myself as winters are approaching” said Alpa. Another final year student Neha felt that the theory was equally interesting as practical and the queries related to weaving were all sorted out in this workshop.
Dr. Sween, Coodinator of the Fashion Technology Department said “With such workshops included in our curriculum, alongwith the apparel and home furnishing industry, our students will be able to work with the Indian weaver in creating unique lifestyle products”.
