I would like to attend the workshop, how do I confirm my participation?
Please call on 9916253832 and confirm your participation by paying ₹500 (payment details will be shared with you over the phone)
I am residing far away from your location, can you conduct a workshop near my locality?
Krishne is currently located at Shanthinagar, Bengaluru and hence the workshop is conducted only from this location.
Moreover..women from Tamilnadu, AP ,Telangana, Goa and other districts of Karnataka make all the efforts to learn saree kuchu making at Krishne..hence conducting else where or online is not possible.
However, you could be the one to learn from your local area & offer saree kuchu making classes in your locality or online..
I am planning to attend your workshop over the weekend, will that make any difference?
Krishne’s weekend kuchu making workshop is mainly suited for the women busy during the weekdays.
The course structure, levels and the fees remains the same for Regular as well as the Weekend workshop, the difference will be the timings and the overall duration i.e
Regular Workshop: 7 days - Monday to Sunday (1pm to 5pm) = 28 hours
Weekend Workshop: 4 days - Two consecutive Saturdays and Sundays (10am to 5pm) = 28 hours
While more than 95% of the women attending the regular workshop tend to complete all the three levels in one go, Women attending the weekend workshop will need two weekend workshops to complete all the three levels.
What if I already paid the workshop fees but could not complete the levels that I paid for?
No worries, We understand that each individuals learning abilities vary and our daily schedules can change in the last minute.
You will be notified on the next forthcoming workshop schedules and encouraged to complete the workshop levels that you have paid for..at no extra cost within a year.
No, please plan to attend our next forthcoming workshop instead.
At Krishne, We mainly cater to the saree kuchu orders and kuchu making workshop has been our endeavour to encourage more women to learn this traditional craft as an hobby or help them towards their self empowerment.
Hence, the workshop is conducted periodically considering that lot of effort is needed along with managing our saree kuchu orders.
Can you conduct this workshop online i.e through skype etc,..?
We have experienced that this craft form is best suited to learn in person and hence do not conduct online classes.
Although, we would like to share that some of the crafters have learnt the basics of crochet tasselling through blogs, youtube videos etc.. and have attended our TWO days weekend workshop in person to learn our signature kuchu designs.
Can you teach me the kuchu designs from your Designer Collection..?
Wish we could.., Krishne's designer tassel kuchus are crafted using a combination of handcraft techniques like Aari, Hand Embroidery, Zardozi etc. These are complicated kuchu designs that typically need involvement of several crafters and also time consuming, hence the designer kuchus are not taught during the workshop.
You may still learn each of the mentioned craft forms from other craft tutors or through the YouTube videos and fulfill your desire of crafting the designer kuchus.
