The Dastkar Craft Exhibition is held annually in the grounds of Chitrakala Parishad in Bangalore. I would like to show you a few pictures I took whilst visiting it. See my album on Ipernity: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/adam/album/85415
An excerpt from the Deccan Herald (a newspaper in Bangalore India) adds a bit more detail to my description (See: http://www.deccanherald.com/CONTENT/Aug232008/metrosat2008082286012.asp ):
|"Dastkar, a national NGO for crafts and craftspeople, celebrates its fourth Nature Bazaar at Chitrakala Parishat till September 1. The bazaar brings together different craft skills from 19 states from across the country.|
The bazaar is not just a showcase for indigenous techniques, textures and designs, but a forum for environmental, social and cultural concerns, bringing together ideas and issues as well as people and products.
