Street Photography Workshop is designed to get practical experience of shooting at the location. This is an on-field workshop with a practical shoot at Kumbharwada in Dharavi
Kumbharwada in Dharavi is an establishment of potters almost 100 years old. It is the largest community of potters in Mumbai. They are originally from Saurashtra, Gujarat. Khumbars means potter and Wada means colony. Hence the name Kumbharwada colony of potters. It occupies 22 acres of land that houses around 1400-1500 families, 700800 of whom still practice pottery today.
Potters in Kumbharwada still make use of traditional methods of pottery. They use indigenous red and grey clay and bake the molds in traditional kilns. They use waste forms and sheets of cardboards to light up the kilns. These clay products have simple designs and come in various shapes and sizes. Usually, they make earthen pots, bowls, and flower vases.
Unlike the high-rises of busy and noisy Mumbai, a walk through Kumbharwada feels like a trek into time in a traditional village in Gujarat. Kumbharwada is a friendly and happy place where you see families living and working together. Unlike the rest of Dharavi, it is extremely clean and ventilated.
