Handicraft Atelier

The Handicraft Atelier (Shilpashala) was launched at Jnana-Pravaha on 1st June 2008 with the view to preserve and promote the fast-diminishing traditional art and craft of the ancient city of Varanasi. Once known for its unique and multifarious hand-made objects, the city is now left with a handful of artisans working in the fast changing and challenging scenario. In fact, the artists working with wood, clay, metal, paper, stone, etc. can now be counted on fingertips, which is certainly an alarming situation. The Institution has, thus, decided to make an effort to encourage such artists to come up with new creations. Required facilities are provided to motivate the young generation also to come forward and contribute in saving these dying traditional arts and crafts of Banaras. The artisans here are currently working under the supervision of Dr. Pramod Giri. Please note that the prices mentioned in the website are subjected to change with the prices of raw material used for creating such objects. The actual packaging and courier charges will be additional for outstation orders. Since the objects are hand-made, hence, a slight variation may occur in size or weight of the object during reproduction.
