The participating artisans and weavers unravel various processes, tools and techniques involved in making of a craft or textile. Hand crafting and handloom weaving are marvelous skills to watch live. The visitor learns about the tedious processes and enjoys purchasing a souvenir or two to carry home. During the one month stay in the museum, the performers craftsperson and weavers time and again go to the reserve collections and museum galleries to involve in reviving the traditional techniques and designs. This platform thus provides a direct platform to the performers, artisans and weavers to propagate their skills and product to the visiting public.
