2019 has been a very eventful year for the Creative Hands Club (CHC). Many talented members of IWA came forward to teach different art forms to other members like fabric painting, Kerala mural painting, Mandala dot art, Kasuti kala, salad carving, rangoli, decorative boxes, and flower arrangement.
CHC also took active part in outreach projects like the Henna workshop @ H.O.M.E, a collaboration with SINDA for “Project Give”, and soap scraping with SGSC. CHC setup the photo booth for the IWA Summer & Festive Bazaars & created the Rangoli display for the Indian High Commission’s Republic Day celebrations.
The Creative Hands Club plans to conduct many more hands-on activities and outreach programs for the members and their guests in the upcoming year. It is delightful to see beautiful art work created by our dear friends. We cherish and encourage the artistic streak in all. It’s a good time, with external situation urging you to be at home, to give your creative hands a chance to express.
