Capacity Building Programme : We plan to conduct different workshops throughout the year which will focus on developing various skills and creating awareness about different pertinent issues for our community partners. - Design Conceptulization and Development Workshop We conducted a 5 day residential workshop with 15 artisans (Weavers + Cane Craftsmen) to help them learn how to ideate and create new designs as well as provide knowledge about current market trends, available craft products from other states and how to create modern utility products using their traditional designs and skills. The workshop was conducted pro bono by Mrs. Shibani Jain, NID Alumni , Founder of the Baaya Design Store in Mumbai. The workshop had 6 sessions focusing on the following concepts; Session 1 - Design Concepts Session 2 - Design Brainstorming Session 3 - Product Awareness Session 4 - Product Analysis and Market Viability Session 5 - Colour Concepts Learning from this workshop is reflected in the range of products created by our artisans for the Village Enterprise showcased in the Products section in the Website.
The Saneki Collective : A participatory Rural Community Tourism initiative. This initiative is an opportunity for travelers, artists, photographers, writers, visitors, wildlife enthusiasts; anyone who is keen to learn about the communities we work with to come and meet our artisans, experience the unique wilderness of north bank Assam and other locations. We hope that you will support our efforts to not only build Sustainable Alternate Livelihoods for the communities affected by HEC but also raise awareness about Wildlife and Nature Conservation.
Handloom & Handicraft unit : We work with a majority of weavers and cane/bamboo artisans from our project villages in an attempt to provide them with an alternate source of income, which will not only help to offset the economic losses caused by Human-Elephant conflict but also encourage them to continue their craft, develop their skills and teach these traditional arts to the next generation. We can do bulk or customized individual orders. We are constantly trying new designs and ideas for cane and handloom products; so do write in with feedback and ideas and keep checking in to see our latest work. We hope to expand our artisan base as much as possible so do support our initiative and help our artisans to preserve their heritage.
