Winding Snake Productions is proud and excited to announce that the launch of their latest project Rangoli: Art that Binds will be hosted by Small World Theatre (project partner) on Tuesday 15 August.
Rangoli (or kollam) is a women’s decorative artform designed to reflect the natural world. Join us to learn about this exciting cultural tradition and celebrate to 70 years of Indian independence!
We’re inviting people from across the community to join us for a day of all things Rangoli; coming together to celebrate friendship, art and beauty in dazzling displays of colour, skill and skillshare in an all-day Rangoli making workshop with artists from India and Wales.
Create your own design in the morning and after a delicious Bengali lunch, the group will create a Rangoli together using powders from the markets of Delhi.
We’ll be working with special guest Indian folk artist Rajni Kiran-Jha to create intricate, colourful, collaborative art. People of all ages and backgrounds will have the opportunity to learn how to create their own Rangoli artwork, meet the Winding Snake team, enjoy tasty Indian treats and contribute to a gigantic piece of Rangoli art on Small World Theatre’s very own circular stage. Much of the activity will take place on the floor so you might want to bring a cushion along.
