    Bhuman,

    Lac jewellery making is not as easy as Fashion jewellery making. Lac jewellery making includes a lot of equipments to do and needs fire also. Its may be good to see them do, however, if you want to do it for your own consumption, its lot of work to do it at home and we need to buy equipments also.

    You may call Dakshin Chitra and find out when is their next Lac jewellery making workshop.

    Hi Friends,

    Dakshin Chitra is located off ECR, towards Pondy , near Muttu kadu. It is a art and heritage centre. They conduct regular workshops on dying arts like lac jewellery, batik, kalamkari etc.

    From my little bit of research on lac jewellery - they are what we call as jaipur jewels. It is done using fire, and cant be done at home like fashion jewellery.It also uses Kundan.

    Even I will be very interested to learn to do that. next time, we need to see papers regularly because Dakshin Chitra advertises in that. Once I know, I will post it here.

    Probably anusha can post some pics of her lac jewellery here :)

    Hey IL,

    I just called Dakshin Chitra. And I spoke to the person there. Very cordial and sweet people. They are not planning on a lac workshop in the next 6 months :cry:. But they do have other things like screen printing and all lined up. They told they will mail me a list of all planned workshops, so once they do that, I will post more here.

    That seems to be a roaring response...!!
    However during the December workshop, I did not see any Ilite's show interest on this...
    This is not like our fashion jewellery making which is pretty easy to handle and do things.
    Lac jewellery though it looks very good, there are some 9 - 10 small equipements which they want us to buy from them, in order to do it from home. It costs about 3000 bucks for the equipements alone. Additionally it requires fire to do these jewellery and we need to have good practice in moulding the bangle and even sticking stones on top of these jewellery.
    This is just my opinion based on my experience.
    However, it was good to watch how they do this. I will certainly post my pics soon though I decided not to persue this at home.

    Cheers!
