Workshops

All workshops are instructed by WELL women from the villages around Auroville. These women are very well practiced and have teaching experience in and out of Auroville.

Below are the details regarding the workshop:

1. Paper Mache Introductory Workshop 
In this workshop, you will learn the making and usage of colored paper pulp. You will be guided through the process of cutting and shaping a serving bowl from a waste cardboard on which you will apply the pulp in your own design. We will show you how to manipulate and smooth the pulp into the shape of a bowl. Depending on the weather it usually takes an average of two days for the bowel to dry.

2. Bowls Coiling Introductory Workshop
The WELL Women will introduce you to creating beautiful bowls, containers or accessories made of flattened and coiled newspaper sticks. Most likely you will end up with more than one item.

3. Baskets Weaving Introductory Workshop 
Our experienced Wellpaper ladies will teach you how to create the newspaper sticks that are made from a rolled up newspaper that serves as reeds for the baskets. You will be instructed and supported during the process. By the end of the workshop, you will have made your own basket.
