Craft fest I visited

Recently visited a craft fest which was organized in Chitrakala Parishad, Bangalore. It was really nice experience for craft lovers like me. Sharing some glimpses of the fest here.
The entrance , where both the sides you can view, artisans from different states exhibiting their craft works. 
Different idols made of brass, potteries and wood articles.

Beautiful idols of Shri Krishna and Shri Venkatesha
Beautiful jeweleries, and articles made of shells. Also you can see flowers made of  wood, sola-wood   etc

Mesmerising Tanjore paintings
And this was the attraction of the exhibition, elephants made of artificial flowers. You can see Ambari also on the flower elephant :-)
Hope you enjoyed this craft fest.
For long I didn't work on screen printing. Planning to design sarees and Kurtis with screen printing. Also working on some pencil sketches. Share about those in the coming posts.

Until then,

Antique saree with pure Silver zaree

I often design dresses. I like all the kind of dresses, western as well as Indian.  But my all time favorite is  Saree. I always love to wear saree and design saree. Saree , the six yard magic, truly creates magic on the woman wearing it.

I always wanted to write about different kinds of saree. So starting with this post, writing about this fifty years old Banaras silk saree. This is my mother's wedding saree. She has kept it very carefully. Still it looks very beautiful,and antique also.

Banras Saree  
This is light Blue Banaras silk,  with very beautiful vine design, in Silver , Pink and Maroon. And the whole body has Silver buttas on it.
Pallu is also very elegant, with silver zari weaving and Pink and Maroon flower on it. And the Zari is made of pure Silver.
