Anita Bose is offering two unique workshops in Bangkok next month for an extremely reasonable price. The first, from 7 to 9 June, is on ancient Indian meditative traditional art, Madhubani. Madhubani painting has been, and still is, practiced in the Mithila region of India and Nepal and is therefore also known as “Mithila Painting”. This unique painting art is done with fingers, twigs, brushes, nib-pens, and matchsticks, using natural dyes and pigments, and is characterized by eye-catching geometrical patterns.

Originally, these paintings were made for particular occasions, such as birth or marriage, and festivals. There are no such restrictions today, instead, as Anita puts it: „We all need some times to relax and calm our souls and minds in today’s distracting world. This unique workshop offers the opportunity rejuvenating your mind, creativity and inner peace.“

Her second Workshop, from 14 to 16 June, is about Bandhani or Tie and Dye Art. This Art has been invented in the Indus valley of old India, where dyeing was done as early as 4000 B.C. The tie-dye textile is decorated by plucking the cloth with the fingernails into many tiny bindings that form a figurative design.

Both workshops come with all necessary materials included. Every participant will learn the technique of these arts in each workshop and should be able to produce three artistic pieces during the three days: for instance, in Madhubani Art, a tote bag, a small purse and a greeting card on art paper, while in Bandhani Art, it would be two colourful pieces of cushion cover, a cotton dopatta or a cotton scarf.

Workshop 1 will be held on JUNE 7/8/9 for MADHUBANI ART and costs 2500 Baht
Workshop 2 on JUNE 14/15/16 for TIE & DYE or BANDHANI ART costs 3500 Baht

All equipment and materials are provided

Times are from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30, but if anyone would not make it in time due to Bangkok traffic, she or he might also start from 10 a.m. and continue to 1 p.m.

Our dear mother gave all three of us children two common first names but in a unique combination. I thank her for having been well ahead of her time. None of us has a googlegänger. Mother keeps me still today from writing silly things about myself in order to make people recognize me or to appear more special than I actually am. Thank you for your visit.
