Pottery Workshop at BBIS, Dwarka

Claying Thoughts recently organized a 2-Day skill based pottery workshop at BBIS Dwarka for a group of 80 students. The workshop was designed to introduce handbuilding pottery techniques to students and enable them to independently create clay objects using the techniques taught to them. 
The students were introduced to pottery process and different clay handling techniques. Handbuilding techniques were demonstrated to them for making pots and other decoration items, such as hangings and masks. Students were encouraged to add their own creativity to make their pottery piece unique. Surprisingly, most of the students were touching clay for the first time but they were surely handling it like a pro. 
Thank you BBIS for making us a part of this creative endeavor. A sincere thanks to teachers for their great support and special kudos to the group of exceptionally creative and well behaved bunch of students :) Bhavanites….you ROCK!!
Take a look at few moments I captured through my lens. Don't miss the special art room decoration right from the ceiling to the walls around. It was such an inspiring decor and well conceptualized.

Preparations for Ganesh Chaturthi 2016

Ganesh Chaturthi fever has started gripping the country. And of course it is gripping me too. This year, I have also started the preparations for clay Ganesha idols much in advance. Last year, there were plenty of inquiries for buying clay Ganesha from people across Delhi NCR and various other parts of the country including overseas :)
So, this year we have opened the bookings for ecofriendly clay Ganesha much in advance. We create each piece with lot of love and do not use molds as we do not believe in factory mode. This is the reason we make exclusive Ganesha idols. Here are couple of Ganesha sculpted in the past. Looking forward to creating bigger and even better idols.

Like last year, we are also organizing eco-friendly Ganesha Idol workshop for people who wish to learn sculpting basic ganesha sculpture with their own hands. The Ganpati idol making workshop will be organized in studio, schools, colleges, corporate offices, community center, and events. We use wet terrracotta clay that is natural and can be easily dissolved in the water upon immersion.

Devotees can perform ganesh visarjan at home as well in a clean bucket full of water. Read our previous blogpost on same to see the steps to do visarjan at home.


Happy Festivities
