ABOUT LLDC

The Living and Learning Design Centre (LLDC) is a pioneering effort of the Shrujan Trust to preserve, revitalize, and promote the glorious craft heritage of Kutch.

The sprawling LLDC complex, located in Ajrakhpur, Kutch, houses an international-standard crafts museum that has received wide appreciation from visitors all over the world.

The Living Embroideries of Kutch, an on-going show at the museum, celebrates the rich and diverse embroideries of Kutch.

LLDC is, however, much more than a museum. Dedicated to the craftspeople of Kutch, it is a multi-dimensional crafts education and resource centre that trains and supports craftspeople in traditional crafts so that they are capable of earning a dignified livelihood.

The museum complex houses 3 galleries, a library, and a crafts studio for artisans practicing various crafts—for example, weaving, block-printing, pottery, and metal work of Kutch. The complex also has a well-equipped conference room and an auditorium.

Come, experience the magic of Kutch and its crafts!
