Crafter Space at Durgadahalli, near Tumkur is located in the IruWay farm, at the foothill of Devarayanadurga hills by the reserved forest and heritage forts. Mitan and Janastu have been working together in exploring an integrated space for local groups to work with local materials in a makerspace environment that can nurture innovation in production of local products.
What sets us apart
Areca, Banana Stem, Bullrush, Coconut and Palm etc. Naturally available materials are used in creative ways bringing out the uniqueness of location.
Products are 100% Handmade using local handmade tools and design enhancements made by youth using the makerspace.
The Crafter Space engages in research and technology development to make sustainable connections between local people and their needs.
