Come and learn the art of storytelling and communication!

You not only learn the intricacies of this traditional Indian art form but also get the opportunity to beautify your own piece of clothing with symbols, designs and motifs taught to you by the traditional Pattachitra artisan during the 2-hour workshop. 

The Patua community of West Bengal has practiced the ancient craft of Pattachitra since the 13th Century. The traditional painters would wander from village to village, entertaining and educating village folks. They would unroll each hand-painted scroll, frame by frame, and sing pater gaan or narrative songs that they had composed themselves. The Chitrakars mostly share stories rooted in mythology and folklore however, recent stories include social messages and narratives on contemporary events.


Duration: 2 hours

All materials will be provided by us. 


In this world of digital art and 3D printing, Nazariya is a movement to bring us closer, to the beautiful world of Indian Folk Art. It is an effort in not just reviving these artforms, but also making them relevant for today. Nazariya is trying to bring out the subtle message behind these artforms; the message of unity, brotherhood and community. This is Nazariya's way of taking you on an incredible journey into India's past, helping us create a new future.
