Tasara provides training in weaving, dyeing (chemicaI and natural printing and batik) for both beginers and advanced. Tasara annual Workshops have become a major textile venue for in- ternational artists and weavers to get to- gether and interact.
Tasara tapestries have been widely exhibited in India, Europe, the US. and the Middle Easts and have won the acclaim of all the media, connoisseurs and laymen alike. Tasara hand- woven furnishings and tapestries decorate many a prestigeous private and public houses across the world.
The fee for one month of framing / artist- in-residence includes supplies food, accommodation, individual looms and weaving lessons. An advance amount is required on registration. Participants will have chance to experience and explore the lifestyle and flavours of the local culture.
