About Shilpkatha

SID’s annual Craft Sustenance initiative, Shilpkatha is scheduled on 5th - 6th October, 2018 at the SID campus. The institutional objective of this event is to conserve and bring about a product diversification of heritage Indian crafts. Keeping up with the annual practice of craft appreciaton and sustenance, this year the students of SID took to the bylanes of Madhya Pradesh, to explore its diverse cultural heritage. With this event, we aim to get you up, close & personal with our wondrous journey and its outcome.
