This summer, pick up a
new craft as a woodcut workshop is set to take you through the process of the ancient art of printmaking. Delhibased artist Anjali Goel, whose art practise has involved printmaking and books, will teach you how to carve your own relief wood blocks and use them to create interesting prints. The day-long workshop includes material and you will be able to take your own masterpiece back as a souvenir of a summer day well-spent.
Tamaala, the venue for the workshop was started by Vinay Prashant, 44, and Suvarna Kamakshi, 42, as an art gallery aimed to bridge the gap between visual arts and handicraft. It is here that rural artisans share space with upcoming contemporary artists to create a visual spectacle. A practising artist herself, Kamakshi works with wood and clay and has collaborated with lacquer work artisans from Channapatana to create new work. “The need for workshops to help people understand art and craft was imminent. However, here the focus is as much on the artist as the craft. We don’t discriminate between rural and urban artists or crafts that have been passed on over generations,” explains Prashant.
