FOURTEEN Divine Word University community members, including academics, graduated from a silk printing workshop last Sunday.
The participants, mostly wives and children of the academic and teaching staff, and academic Dr Anastasia Sia, were presented certificates of attendance after successfully completing a five-day intensive silk printing and dying workshop facilitated by Somax Ipo, a specialist silk printer.
The graduation was witnessed by vice-president academic Benjamin Naing, dean of the faculty health sciences Prof Francis Hombanjie, family members and friends.
Mr Naing said he was proud to see that the training involved a wide range of group of people including academics, house-wives, former lecturers, administrative staff members and their children.
He urged the participants to use their new-found skills to assist and benefit many communities.
Dr Sai thanked Mr Ipo for sharing his knowledge with them, adding that not many people would like to share their skills with other people.
