Project Tarasha Artisan Direct

January 20 @ 12:00 am - January 22 @ 11:59 pm

Project Tarasha Artisan Direct – A Constellation of Art, Craft and Design brings together the most talented artisans from nooks and corners of the country, an expert curator from the heart of Mumbai, designers, pattern makers, tailors, performing artists, visual artists, speakers, craft experts and the list goes on…

Everyone striving to create an accentuated, immersive handmade experience for you! Come shop directly from our artisans at our zero commission bazaar, see traditional crafts in a new light, hear our stories, try making magic with your own hands in our workshops, and connect with handmade in the most special ways!

 

Artisan Direct gathers 20 diverse craft producers practicing several crafts – from Aari, Sujani and Tilla embroidery in Kashmir to Lambani & Kasuti in Karnataka, Copper bell craft & Ajrakh in Kutch, mat weaving from West Bengal, wood carving in Uttar Pradesh to the Punja durries & Kavads in Rajasthan and, eco-friendly handicrafts like banana fiber, bulrush reed, recycled paper products – again from Karnataka – you will find it all here.

 

The show brings forth a confluence of two profound creative forces : Craft & Design
We believe that craft and design are two faces of the same coin. Infact, in the Indian context, craft and design have always been used interchangeably. However, in the last two decades or so, the dynamic has shifted, skewing towards designers and reducing artisans to mere manufacturers or suppliers. Our event illustrates an equitable artisan-designer collaboration with focus on inclusive design, co-learning, co-creating and two way knowledge transfer.

 

Just how stars are aligned beautifully in a constellation, the showcase aligns art, craft and design while bringing together all the stars aka ‘the artisans’ that Tarasha stands for.
