A two-hour workshop on the art of paper-toy making, conducted by artist Sanjiv Kumar Chouhan, in the beautiful environs of the Sanskriti Kendra.
Of course it’s a great new hobby idea for the kids, but why not explore any dormant skills you might have as well? The event is open to children above the age of five, and to interested grown-ups.
The workshop promises to make for an interesting afternoon. Encourage sticky fingers and happy faces, as your child learns to twist, bend or fold paper into a butterfly, a tortoise or a giraffe. In fact, we think you should dip your fingers in glue, too! Since the age of 11, Sanjiv Chouhan has been experimenting with paper toys and has been amusing kids and adults alike with his quirky creations. We’re sure you won’t be able to resist either.
There’s also a valuable lesson to be learned – one of sustainability. The workshop hopes to inspire younger generations to reuse, reinvent and recycle.
A tour of the Sanskriti Terracotta museum and the Crafts museum is also part of the itinerary. After the workshop, admire your handy work over high tea and snacks. When you leave Sanskriti Kendra, you’ll take back some beautiful paper toys, a child bubbling with creativity, and an experience you’ll cherish.
If you’re not participating in the workshop, tea will be served at an additional cost of INR 300. Also, children below the age of 16 years must be accompanied by an adult.
