About the Session

What if there was a way to turn waste into something of daily utility? Upcycling is taking the world by storm and is something we all need to start including in our daily activities and what better way than to start with Raksha Bandhan which is right around the corner. In this interactive and do-it-along session, our knowledge contributor – Meenakshi Sharma, will help you create a beautiful Rakhi and a special gift for your sibling from materials lying at home that you would have otherwise disposed of. At the end of the session, you will understand how easy it is to create items of value from things that you would have otherwise thrown away.
