A GLIMPSE OF DESIGN AT CRAFTS MUSEUM
The National Handicrafts and Handlooms Museum, commonly known as National Crafts Museum, is one of the largest crafts museums in India. Students of Jewellery Design department of Hauz Khas centre of JD Institute got the chance to explore the cultural heritage of India at the Crafts Museum on 28th August. The museum shares its wall with our rich Indian history. The purpose of the trip was to make students experience our rich cultural heritage and draw inspiration from age-old artefacts and textiles on display.
There’s no shortage of research indicating the benefits of museum visits. The museum has an inexhaustible collection of antiques. The walls of the Museum are adorned with Worli and Gujrati paintings. At the museum, students interacted with the craftsmen, who had put their exquisite skills and products on display. All their products were beautifully crafted by hand. They studied the motifs and learnt how to use them in their designs.
Students got to learn different forms of Art and also how to transform art into different Jewellery pieces and to give a completely contemporary look to the design. The gallery was full of sculptures, handicrafts, clothes and other items used in Ancient India.
Overall it was a great opportunity for students to discover the cultural heritage of our nation. JD Institute conducts such activities to provide memorable, immersive learning to all the Jediiians.
