Independent programmes
modelled to provide technical support to the craft industry, creating a dynamic platform
for interaction and learning.
CDI conducts Short-Term Training for artisans, industry
professionals as well as individuals who aspire to or currently
work in the area of handicrafts. Most often, these programmes
are conceived in response to a given need, including skill
up-gradation, product diversification, technology or business development. The objective of each programme is to provide technical support to the industry, create a dynamic platform for interaction and learning, and generate a rich knowledge resource
and experience base for the Institute.

All training sessions are applied in nature and offer a hands-on approach. Always anchored around real-life situations, learning is facilitated through interaction, exposure, experience and documentation.

Programmes conducted by the Institute include:

• Development of innovative joinery in wooden furniture
• Entrepreneurship development in handicrafts
• Pattern cutting & stitching of ladies garments
• Computer-aided design & representation techniques

Admission Criteria and Eligibility: Since the short-term training programmes are diverse in nature, the eligibility criteria are dependent on the specific contents and level of inputs envisaged for each programme. However in most cases, a minimum level of secondary school education or vocational training diploma is desirable.

All short-term training programmes are advertised through daily newspapers as well as the CDI’s website, a month prior to their commencement.
Duration: Programmes may vary from a duration of 2 to 15 weeks, depending on the nature of subject being addressed.
