The next 15 days at the Dilli Haat are going to be even more colourful and vibrant as the 32nd edition of Dastkari Haat Craft Bazaar has begun on a fascinating note
As usual, the venue is hosting a melange of traditional Indian and international crafts and textiles. Cultural performances are like icing on the cake. Five craft persons from Israel are working with their Indian counterparts from Jammu and Kashmir, Bihar, Delhi, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan to create two completely new art pieces, each combining common understandings and skills in entirely new designs under the guidance of two Indian designers. These art pieces are being created with finesse by Israeli artists in different art forms — papier machie by Vered Otmy, patchwork by Orna Shahar, embroidery in textile by Sassona Schits , paper cutwork by Janine Golbert and wire mesh by Nihad Dabeet.
The Israel-India workshop, which is being held till January 14, showcases fresh art pieces to the public. During the workshop, art connoisseurs are getting a chance to interact with artisans and watch their work in progress.
The bazaar also touches upon the important aspects of the craft producers’ life by showcasing myriad cultural performances including folk music from Rajasthan, the exotic tribal martial Chhau dancers who will be dancing as well as demonstrating the mask making from West Bengal, the mesmerizing ‘Pinguli Art’- a unique style of painting that incorporates storytelling from Maharashtra, traditional weaving and singing performances from Gujarat and soulful flute renditions by a Varanasi flute player who will be willing to teach to the interested viewers.
