Sari Draping Workshop with Santanu Das

A Sari is a five and half meters of unstitched cloth, draped by women as a garment. Traditionally they are hand-woven. Every region in India has a particular way of sari weaving and draping styles that reflect the local culture and the wearer's occupation.

In this course, you will be introduced to various kinds of saris from India and their cultural significance, and you will learn various draping styles. Besides learning how to drape a sari, you will be inspired to explore ways to use smaller pieces of cloth (like scarves, sarongs, etc.) to drape on top of your regular Western-style clothes or to create other unstitched garments like skirts, pants and tops.

This course will be led by Santanu Das, creator and designer of Maku Textiles. Maku Textiles is a slow fashion clothing line from the city of Joy, Kolkata in India.
