The Sounds of Sewing : An ethnographic study of doll makers in gujarat

The Sounds of Sewing presents findings from a three-week ethnographic study working with doll makers in Gujarat. Over the course of the study, I learnt and studied the daily activities of the social group by immersing myself in the lives of the group by going to work with them daily at their workshop which was also the home of the group's matriarch. Data was collected in the form of Participant Observations, Field Notes, Long Interviews, Images and Videos. The collected data was analysed using open coding which led to interpretation of significant categories, phrases, metaphors and sounds for the group and creation of the artifact.
