shopping - Mysore v. Bangalore

Where are we most likely to find a good selection of handicrafts - Cauvery Mysore or Cauvery Bangalore? Are there places in Mysore where we can watch artisans carving sandalwood?

Thanks!

If you are likely to be at Bangalore around 27/30 Nov you can catch the a hundredhands.com initiative. Chitra Kala Parishad on Kumar Krupa Road ( near Lalit Hotel) is another good place to check on any special events.The Sandalwood factory in Mysore is restricted to incense products and no longer has craftspersons at work.http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-features/tp-districtplus/no-successors/article5007697.ece will give you a sense of the state of affairs.
