Sometimes, don't you feel like a hobby would help you catch a break from your everyday hectic life? Having a hobby is certainly a great way to do away with the monotony of daily routine and that is exactly why you should try out the art of Taarkashi.

What's happening?

An example of Taarkashi

If you don't have a resolution for the new year yet, then this could be just what you needed to push yourself. A workshop in Taarkashi is something that you don't find every day and it is an opportunity for you to not just learn something new but to give something back to art, which is the fuel of the Earth.

But what exactly is Taarkashi?

Well, Taarkashi is an art form that is certainly a lot more common than you may think. Ornate wood pieces are made to look all the more aesthetic by lining the hand-drawn shapes with copper wires. Through a process of heating, the wire is then fully embedded into the wooden piece, giving it a distinct look.

Here at the workshop, you will receive lessons in the art form which will involve everything- from the most intricate of things and details to the bigger picture stuff. Different tools, materials and techniques used to make the copper inlay will all be provided to you so that you can showcase your skill.

Who's teaching you?

This masterclass will be taught by none other than Mohan Lal Sharma, who has received many plaudits for his work in the art of Taarkashi. He has been giving something back to this art form ever since he was 14, so you can rest assured that you're in good hands.

Knock Knock

Well, folks, there you have it. Jaipur's art scene is so vibrant that there's something in here for everyone. If you like sitting alone and just pouring yourself into your work, then Taarkashi sounds like something that's just for you.
