Revival of Dying Arts through Workshops
March 11 | 11AM - 4PM
In this world of digital art and 3D printing, Nazariya is a movement to bring us closer, to the beautiful world of Indian Folk Art. It is an effort in not just reviving these artforms, but also making them relevant for today. Nazariya is trying to bring out the subtle message behind these artforms; the message of unity, brotherhood and community. This is Nazariya's way of taking you on an incredible journey into India's past, helping us create a new future.
Nazariya is an incredible journey into rural India, not only connecting rural grassroot innovators to the world, but reviving lesser-known art forms, traditions and cultures, bringing out the subtle message of unity, brotherhood and community.
Arabic CalligraphyAbdul Razzak55 Yrs; 45 years experience; Old Delhi
Calligraphy is the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner. First practised by Sumerians, calligraphy became very popular in Asia. Here, it evolved into a new alphabet, with more details and basic sounds.
About the workshop: Arabic calligraphy taught by Abdul Rehman - a master Arabic calligrapher who has learnt the art from the enriching lineage of the masters themselves! He is one of the only few authentic teachers and propagator of the exotic art form. Join us as we propagate this exotic, rare & beautiful art form and walk away as a part of a legacy that you will carry forward.
All Material will be provided by us.
