Activities will include: Indian Block Printing Workshop, 11:00 – 1:00pm, $25 in advance/$30 at the door. Textile Artist Hemangini Singh will take participants on a journey into the rich history of Indian wood hand block printing and share her knowledge and practice of this tradition. Participants can design and block-print their own small artwork, while learning to work with layers and colors to create their own designs.
Indian Bollywood Dance Workshop, 3:00 – 4:00pm, $20 in advance/$25 at the door. Bollywood dance is a fusion of traditional and classical Indian dance combined with an influence of western and modern dance styles. It is the basis of all Indian films. The lively form of dance encourages movement of all parts of the body giving a total body workout. Participants will learn the basic Bollywood dance steps and work up to a dance to showcase to friends and family.
