Iridescent Art : 3D Mosaic Paper Craft Workshop
Making their way through almost 5 years, Bloom & Grow is an expressional craft studio managed by Carol situated in Koramangala. They provide a platform for artists and crafters to conduct events and workshops for curious art minds in the city. They also conduct online tutorials on a variety of crafts and sessions for children.
The 3D Mosaic Paper craft workshop was facilitated by Ritu Gera. “Randomness is always welcome so go berserk with colours,” says Ritu. Participants learnt basic guidelines of art and craft, technical skills regarding craft materials and useful tips to keep in mind during the 3 hour workshop. Even though the concept may seem easy, the Mosaic Paper craft workshop is a surprise until the end to see the real effect.Ritu facilitated the 3D Mosaic Paper workshop at Bloom & Grow. “I met Carol in the BCL group and this has been my first event in almost 3 years as a paper artist,” says Ritu. “The idea of 3D Mosaic Paper occurred when I combined paper-cutting and quilling together. And this has been a great time for me working and teaching new people about this art form,” added Ritu.
Seema is a Human Resources freelancer. “I was running through the crafts corner on the newspaper and found out about Bangalore Craft Lovers (BCL),” says Seema. “The art of playing with colours with 3D Mosaic is interesting and challenging at the same time for a creative mind. I would love to continue this art and spread the joy as gifts amongst my family,” added Seema.Vidya is a traditional artist mainly in Tanjore, murals and Ganjifa art. “I have attended cubism and cupcake fondant workshops at Bloom and Grow previously. But this is my first 3D Mosaic Paper craft workshop,” says Vidya. “I absolutely loved the suspense until the end to see the 3D effect in my artwork,” added Vidya.
Priyanka manages salons around in the city. “I came across this workshop on BCL. I decided to attend this workshop to figure out the technique behind 3D Mosaic because sometimes pictures don’t speak a thousand words,” says Priyanka. “I had a great time learning a new craft and meeting some wonderful people at the workshop and if I ever do have spare time in my hands, I would love to engage myself in this craft activity,” added Priyanka.If you are interested in art and crafts, and love surprising results, don’t hesitate to be a part of the next workshop!
