More About This Experience
To some, the possession of a smartphone is purely from a utilitarian perspective, but to many of us it's an expression of our individuality and an extension of our persona ;) Our host recognizes this and doesn't discriminate whether you're a Android or IOS fan, Samsung or Iphone or maybe you're into old school first generation Nokias, Bhagwati will teach you how make a case for your phone.
Like most of our courses at WSDO, you get to select a pattern from a wide array of designs to be your mobile case, and these fabrics have all been handmade at WSDO. In fact, if you're lucky you may just get to see some of them women on their handlooms weaving the very fabric you will be working on.
You'll begin by measuring your phone and cutting the fabric to size. From here it's on to the sewing machine so if you've an excellent hand and eye coordination then this step should be a walk in the park.
