LCW: Introduction to Khadi Cotton Hand Spinning on the Indian Charkha
10 May - 10 May 2019 | Event
| Free

During this session, you will learn the basics of hand spinning, gain insights into how cotton is produced and what its characteristics are in terms of fibre structure and be introduced to the Gandhian philosophy on the importance of hand spinning.

Khadi (pronounced Khādī) is any cloth that is hand-spun and hand-woven. In 1918 Mahatma Gandhi started his movement for Khadi when spinning and weaving were elevated to an ideology for self-reliance and self-governance.
