About the Workshop +

Open the Doors to the world of Kawad, the mobile temple: A children workshop exploring the marvels of Kawad Art.

"Garmi ki Chutti"- A series of children workshops in collaboration with Dwarka Prasad and MeMeraki.

In this workshop, kids will get the opportunity to paint their very own Kawad, a mobile temple that is an integral part of the traditional art and culture of Rajasthan. They will start by learning about the history and significance of Kawad and some of the stories that are often depicted on them. The facilitator will share some videos and other snippets of information to help bring the art form to life. Next, kids will choose a story to paint onto their Kawad. They can either sketch their design by hand or use stencils provided by the facilitator. For younger children, there will also be the option to fold paper to imitate the making of a Kawad. Vishakha, the artist behind the workshop, will create a prototype on paper to demonstrate the folding technique. Once the design is sketched or stenciled onto the small wooden Kawad, kids will paint it using a variety of vibrant colors. They will be guided through the process by the facilitator and will have the chance to add their own unique touches to their artwork. By the end of the workshop, kids will have their own beautifully painted Kawad to take home and display proudly. They will also have learned about the cultural significance of Kawad and gained a greater appreciation for this traditional art form.

Kavad Art

The Kavad is a mobile story-telling device that sometimes serves as a temporary temple. It is created by combining the skills of carpentry, painting and narration. As separate professions, the carpenter is called a suthar, an artist is a chitrakar, and a story teller is a bhat. The Kavad makers combine the work of the carpenter and artist, while the Kavadia Bhats do the narration. The Kavad is made only in a village called Bassi, in Chittorgarh District of Rajasthan.

We only have a few Masterclasses right now - Lippan art from Kutch and Pichwai art from Nathdwara, Rajasthan and are producing and adding more every month. While we cover more than 60 heritage art and craft forms in our live workshops already.
