The screen-printing department produces the WIT stationery, greetings cards, food labels, gift tags, paper bags and customised stationery. All the work is done by hand.
We use recycled and hand made paper wherever possible and incorporate both traditional and contemporary designs.
The department is headed by a full time supervisor. She has a staff of full time workers and students whom she trains herself.
The training begins with the familiarisation of the entire screen printing process - the equipment, the printing and exposing tables, the chemicals and dyes used, and then progresses to the many procedures involved in the screen printing process.
On completion of the screen printing course a WIT certificate is awarded which will help the women to gain employment in an outside printing agency or to work from home.
The screen printers are soon to start printing on fabric, producing items such as sari material, patterned bed sheets, cushion covers, bags and printed T-shirts.
