Whether you grew up DIY-ing at Hobby Ideas, was almost always excited to go to school on the days you had art & craft classes or are that person who loved turning all the trash in your home into something stunning - I'd say we've already bonded virtually and hence am super excited to share my new discovery which you're sure to love. DIY junkies and craft lovers, say hello to The Aesthete Project.
Kickstarted in March 2021, this e-store specialises in all things artsy and DIY. A lockdown baby, The Aesthete Project is a creation of two high-school friends - Ravina and Sanjana - who used the lockdown to leverage and bring back their love and passion for art and craft. And with more and more people turning to fun at-home activities during the pandemic, the launch of this venture was a win-win situation.
So, this is their way of spreading calm and solace during the pandemic - one box at a time. Each DIY box is thoughtfully curated with all the required supplies, easy-to-follow instructions and materials to create your very own masterpiece. Oh, and if you're a beginner, not to worry! It's all super fun, user-friendly and easy-peasy. They started off with two DIY boxes namely Sip & Paint and Tie & Dye. Fun fact: these boxes are inspired by artwork made by children in various NGOs and a part of the sale goes to them. Since then, they've introduced an array of boxes including Baby Box, Floral box and more. These include all the required material like paper, scissors, templates, instruction manual, stencils, non-toxic clay, paints and more.
Their DIY boxes start at INR 1500 and go up to INR 2500. Psst, their Tie & Dye box is selling like hotcakes.
