Wabi Sabi Wanderings: workshop on August 3-4 Sutradhar is organizing a 2-day workshop on ‘Wabi Sabi’ on August 3rd and 4th (Fri-Sat), 2012. What is Wabi Sabi? Wabi Sabi is a Japanese idea, a way of seeing. Wabi Sabi eyes see beauty in the fine crack of a pot, or the muted colors of change. They feel the beauty of fading blossoms, the wrinkles of skin, of creased paper and worn out cloth. They rejoice in the simple, the ordinary, the imperfect. About the workshop The workshop is interdisciplinary, participative and experiential. In this workshop we meet ‘Wabi Sabi’ through story, poetry and art forms with quiet playfulness. Paticipants will explore ink, clay, collage, paper, haiku, scroll paintings and more!
The workshop will be led by Vishakha Chanchani, who trained in Baroda and has been an art teacher at several schools in Bangalore. She feels deeply about nature, animals, art and stories. Her workshops are inherently interdisciplinary, and break the conventional silos of learning through subjects. They appeal to educators who see learning as a meaningful, holistic, open-ended exploration. The workshop is open to all primary school teachers, art teachers and educators interested in creative explorations with children. The workshop will be held at Ashirwad, lane opposite State Bank of India, St. Marks Road, Bangalore. The fee for the workshop is Rs 2000, inclusive of food and materials.
