India: What a fantastic experience (part two)

Third year student Rhian Beynon is having the most wonderful experiences and making fabulous memories while out in India.

Everyday Rhian is learning new skills, and tradition methods, in textile process.Selected by the British Council Rhian is throughly enjoying this extensive textile programme.
This is such a great start to her 3rd year.
We’re excited to she how all those new skills will be developed and shared in the Autumn.We can’t wait to hear and see the results.

Rhian says “We got a chance to try block printing in jodhpur which was great. They only use natural dyes and some of the blocks were over 500 years old! Such a great experience!
They block print about 25 saris a day each! Such talented people”

We are delighted for Rhian Beynon who is ,during the summer break, on a British Council textile programme in India.
Currently in Ahmedabad Rhian is travelling from Mumbai to Delhi.Next stop is Udaipur and Jodhpur.

Rhian says
We have a full packed programme, visiting fashion designers and companies, textile factories, universities, and we have lectures from textile and fashion designers!
We also have visited local artisans and learnt about their handicrafts!We met one artisan and only his family and 3 other families left in India create designs that way! We have also made cultural visits to temples etc, and visited slums etc

It’s Fantastic!!
