Hand Papermaking is an activity which has minimum impact on the immediate surroundings. Alongwith SOACH Centre for Creative and Critical Development, an organisation working with local crafts persons in the vicinity of Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad. Our intervention is creating an opportunity for the local craftsmen and women to learn hand papermaking. As many of these clusters have wood block printing as an established craft, making paper was the missing link. This will help these people learn a new skill as well as create value added products from the same.
