A workshop on screen printing was conducted at the Faiszer Musthapha Foundation headquarters in Grandpass from Saturday 31 May to 1 June. It was organised to empower women from low income families to learn a new life skill which they can utilise to establish a screen printing business of their own. The participants were introduced to wall, woodwork, sari and cushion printing techniques in the course of the two-day workshop. The workshop, which was held in collaboration with SWARGA Association of fashion, art, designers and beauticians, saw the participation of around 30 individuals who were exposed to the expert teaching of the academic staff affiliated to the association. Furthermore, the foundation has taken steps to financially assist those who venture into the screen printing business by way of loans.
