NOW I CAN Embroider
NOW I CAN Embroider

After the difficult year 2020, we are geared up to increase our efforts to work on projects that are beneficial and crucial as the world is struggling to come out of the grip of the pandemic. 

With migrant workers in India who were forced to go back to their villages and hometowns during the pandemic, are returning to cities in the hope of job prospects, it becomes crucial that they get access to skills and training so that they can be included in the workforce.

”Now I Can” – the new professional embroidery training program is a  free online training course available on Udemy, one of the leading platforms for online learning and instruction, and is structured in 2 parts and 80 sections that cover both theoretical and practical learning.
Export houses, social enterprises, NGOs can get access to this course free of charge for training women so that Indian women can learn an income generation skill and enter the labor market.
To gain access to this training or to know more, please mail us at support@iwasasari.com 

The course is structured keeping in mind that it is targeted at someone with no prior experience in embroidery. It starts with the basics – from a background of embroidery in India to different needles, threads, and embroidery materials and evolves to hands-on training.

 

To help get comprehensive training, the course is divided into practical and theory. For the practical part, an experienced craftswoman/craftsman and a supervisor are needed to demonstrate and teach the embroidery techniques in detail to the class and there are many short exercises that the beneficiary is required to undertake to complete this training successfully.

 

The course covers two main hand embroideries – zardozi and aari, which comprise parts 1 and 2 of the course. This course is in Hindi with English subtitles. Each session on Udemy is backed with teaching notes, video tutorials, assignments, and quizzes to make the course engaging.
