to build on our previous collage lesson we ran a similar workshop today using fabric from torn up saris. the women based their collages on photos we took around kolkata as well as photos they took (we bought a camera for the women to share). we were thrilled with the collages made during this workshop - we'll photograph them and post them here shortly (though maybe not for 3-5 days. we're busy wrapping things up in time for our departure this thursday 1/14). we'll also include them in an anchal exhibition we're scheduling on the risd campus during the spring semester.
some of lili's design for development students arrived today so we had a night out dancing and drinking ice-less gin and tonics.
