Tie and Dye + Pottery + Mandala Painting Workshop

Tie and Dye + Pottery + Mandala Painting Workshop

The process of tie-dye typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, followed by application of colours or dyes.

Tie and Dye is a universally used technique, the oldest examples date from 500 AD from PERU! In india, this art form is known as BANDHEJ, or to tie. Bandhej is used to create unique patterns in saris and also men turbans in Rajasthan. In this workshop we invite you to learn this very interesting art form and create a work of wearable art that you are welcome to carry with you! It is a perfect afternoon activity to fill in some spare hours with memories that last a long time, and mementoes that you create, carry and cherish!

These workshops are educative, and a lot of fun as well. Full of different colours that you use to create your own design on a scarf or handkerchief that you can carry as a memento! Let the artist in you awake, splash colours, create patterns and carry home memories of this age old art form, used for centuries to create wearable art for kings and commoners alike!

Other than Tie and dye, we also have two more attractive add on in this workshop:

Mandala Painting: Mandalas are eye catching circular patterns, designs that are explained as a circular figure representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism. Jung has a deeper meaning attached to Mandala: in psychology it is explained as a symbol in a dream, representing the dreamer's search for completeness and self-unity.

Paint a mandala, immerse yourself in the pattern and the colours, may we dare say give time to pause and look within! Come out of the experience calmer, happier and with another memento to carry home! These are one of the most off-beat things to do in Jaipur.

Pottery: Pottery is as old as human civilisation. The potters wheel has been spinning for the millennia and creating magic from mud. In our workshop, unique and enriching, we also have a potter. Get down, touch life sustaining mud, get messy and enjoy creating a form out of the formless. Create a small pot a small katuri or lamp that you can then paint and carry with you. You can carry it in its beautiful earthen hue as well.

I wish to combine the few things that I love which are art , culture and luxury and to write and create an unconventional platform.
Because some one recently told me that imagine the thing that you would do for free for the rest of your life and make a career out of it.
