Details

Sikki, The Golden Grass of Bihar is a seasonal crop which grows only after monsoon. Found around the wet, marshy areas near the rivers in the Mithila region of North Bihar, the artisans utilize every part of the plant except for the flower. Traditionally used to make simple household products like baskets or roti box, today the art has evolved to producing intricate weaves for a variety of utility items.

 

In this 2 hour workshop, you will learn about the artisan's journey and get a hands-on experience of creating an intricate and charming Sikki Painting.

He studied Ancient History from Amir Hasan Sakur Ahmed College, Bihar and then founded Rachna Sikki Hasthakala Kendra in 2004 with the aim to propagate the art of Sikki 'golden grass weaving and to create employment opportunities for the locals. Today, Dhirendra Kumar continues to train young individuals who contribute to the ecosystem with their delicate weaves and bends of Sikki.

 

IN COLLABORATION WITH

Nazariya, a social enterprise that celebrates and focuses on reviving indigenous extinct art forms, cultures and traditions.

 

In our world of digital art and 3D printing, Nazariya is a movement that brings you closer to the oft-neglected world of Indian Folk Art.

 

It is an effort towards not just reviving these art forms but also re-contextualizing them for the contemporary world. We at Nazariya aspire to bring out the subtle message behind these art forms; the message of unity, brotherhood and community. This is Nazariya's way of taking you on an incredible journey into India's past, giving you the opportunity to create its new future.
