Chuskit Goes to School
Vani and Prasad learnt this beautiful craft from their family members. When they grow up, do you think they will be able to teach their children the skills of this craft?
If you visit Vani’s village it seems as if the entire village is weaving sarees. Do you know of any other work which many people living in one place do?
- Do they make some articles?
- Find out the process of making the article? What are the different steps?
- Do men and women do different kinds of work to make this article?
- Do children also contribute in making this article?
Talk to an ironsmith, a carpenter and a potter about the nature of their work.
- Where did they learn to do their work?
- What else did they need to learn to be able to do this work?
- Have they taught this work to anybody in their family, or to anyone else?
The table below has a list of different kinds of work that people do. Do you know people who do such work? Write their names in the first column. In the next column write from whom have they learnt their work?
