    Hello everyone! I am Bhavya Gaur and I recently completed my masters from SOAS, University of London. During my time in London, I got an excellent opportunity to research on the collection of textiles in Museum Rietberg, Switzerland which introduced me to the beautiful and colorful world of South Asian textiles. I enrolled in this course to learn basics things about techniques and their history which will be foundational for me as an aspiring Art History scholar.

    Hello, I am Harshita and I joined this course to fuel my interest in textiles and it has been informative so far. I do have a question: I am having a bit of trouble understanding how to answer drag and drop questions. I think I rearranged the tabs in the order but the answer was still shown as wrong, do guide me about the same, thanks!

      Hi Harshita, thank you for flagging your concern! The tabs on top are to be dragged and dropped to correspond with the images/text provided below them. In the case of questions that require you to arrange them in a chronological order, the tabs are to be rearranged (by dragging and dropping) — from top to bottom. Hope this helps. In case the issue still persists, please reach out to us with the details at hellomapacademy@map-india.org.

    I am a television producer and I have been fascinated by our textile traditions ever since I filmed with weavers in Varanasi and Sambhalpur in 2005. I hope to get a more structured understanding through this course.

      Hi Vaibhavi, thank you for choosing our course! Gendered expressions and experiences of working with textiles is something we briefly cover in some of our lessons, and we’re sure you’ll be able to add to the discussion based on your own personal encounters with the subject. Hope you find the course insightful.

Colors, exploring the narratives, and unraveling their history has consistently captivated me. Consequently, I am driven to broaden my understanding across various artistic domains, seeking to immerse myself in diverse realms of creativity.
