Cumulus Student Talent Camp - Day 2

The second day of the Cumulus Student Talent Camp was a captivating journey into the heart of Jaipur's artistic and industrial heritage. With a morning Anapana Meditation session to center their minds, students began the day by reflecting on their enriching experiences from Day 1.

The day's itinerary saw our young talents visiting three prominent industries, each offering a unique glimpse into the world of design and craftsmanship.
Jaipur Rugs
At Jaipur Rugs, students had the privilege of witnessing the time-honored tradition of textile weaving and the creation of exquisite handmade carpets. Skilled artisans became their mentors, guiding them through every step of the intricate process, from the loom to the final masterpiece. The visit left an indelible mark, igniting a deeper appreciation for the artistry behind these stunning creations.
Rangotri, celebrated for its distinctive block print designs, opened its doors to our students, offering them a hands-on experience in block-making. They observed the entire journey of block creation, from designing the blocks to the meticulous final packaging. This immersive experience provided profound insights into the art of block printing, an age-old technique that continues to weave stories through fabrics.
Kalpana Papers
The day concluded with a visit to Kalpana Papers, where students discovered the realm of sustainable practices in paper production. The innovative approach of reusing leftover fabrics to craft eco-friendly paper products left a lasting impression on the participants. It showcased the power of creativity and sustainability converging to shape a greener future.

The Cumulus Student Talent Camp emphasizes practical skills, creativity, innovation, and sustainability in design. It serves as a beacon for students seeking to bridge the gap between theory and real-world application, fostering a profound appreciation for India's heritage and craftsmanship.

Stay tuned for Day 3 of the Cumulus Student Talent Camp, as we continue this exciting journey of learning, creativity, and exploration.
