Colourful days


Today I learned many different techniques in weaving.

Its very difficult to choose one of all the nice colours they have in the workshop.

Now you can see some of these effects.


Fabric Structure “Weaving”

Today we started our first course in Textile Design. We are learning the weaving methods step by step. It takes a long time and you need elevated concentration. But we have fun in this work and we`re looking forward to our first woven lines tomorrow.

Special thanks to Lalu for the good morning chai tea!!!



dsc09652Class has not started yet here at NID but we are taking part in 2 other courses. French and knotting. At the moment here are a few other exchange students from Australia, Spain, France and some are still coming next months.
We plan to do as much handcraft works here as we can do, cause everything is so interesting.
Its not easy to figure everything out, but I think we gonna manage it :). Will be keep informing about everything is gonna happen here.
(it is cold in India, never thought that I would be saying that)



The last weekend on our trip we went with Jahnavee to Mysore, 160 km south-west of Bangalore. It was an amazing trip with lots of great impressions. We went to the “Maharaja Palace”, which we`ve also seen at night with all the beatiful lights like 1001 nights. Then we visited the “Sri-Chamundeshvari-Tempel” and the “Nandi-Bull” on “Chamundi Hill”, 1065 m high. Some pictures were also made on the great, colourful “Devarja-Market” in the center of Mysore.



A little “western life” in India.

M.G. Road, Botanical garden, Art Gallery, cooking at Jahnavees appartment and a special sightseeing tour with rikshaws.

The last two days enjoying beach and ocean in Cherai Beach.



1 day and 1 night on our “own” houseboat. We enjoyed the silence without horns and cars… Just nature.
