Educational Aids for Bamboo Craftsmen
to transfer design and technology

Guide: Prof A G Rao
Changes in lifestyles, expectations, economies and business practices have had a considerable influence on traditional methods of manufacture and crafts. Many products made using traditional means of manufacture and crafts are losing relevance since contemporary lifestyles do not support use of such products. Traditional craftsmen do not find Bamboo craft attractive to invest in and subsequent generations are moving away in search of lucrative jobs. This project is an attempt to develop a distance learning module that will assist the craftspersons in the absence of the designer.Identifying gaps in existing skills and developing an educational kit is the focus of the project.
