Training of Paddy Craft of Orissa begins at Manav Sangrahalaya

Sunday - May 20, 2018 8:13 pm , Category : BHOPAL

Bhopal: Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya under its popular summer series of 'Do and Learn' educational programmes commenced the training workshop of Paddy Craft of Orissa. In this workshop artists from Orissa, Shri Shadda Shiv Munda and Shri Arjun Munda are imparting training of Paddy craft.

No formal tools are used for making these tribal craft of Orissa. The raw material required is mainly un-husked paddy seeds of uniform size. The only other raw material that is needed is thin bamboo sticks and strong yarn in red, green and yellow colours. The process involves tying by hand each individual paddy seed to two thin bamboo sticks that are placed parallel to each other at a minute distance but are sufficiently close enough to hold the paddy seeds tightly in a straight line.

This is a very painstaking and repetitive job that requires high degree of concentration and unmatched dexterity. Each and every seed of paddy has to be knotted individually. Garlands of paddy seeds are thus formed with different colored threads which are then pieced together to give different shapes. The length of each of these paddy garlands is approximately one yard. About ten paddy garlands are required to create 30 pieces of Goddess Laxmi in a medium size. Each of these pieces is sold at a nominal rate. After household chores are over women and children usually perform the hard task of making the paddy garlands in their spare time; both the men and women then craft the final images. Light weight and bright-coloured, Dhaan-murti is a beautiful add-on to your space, bringing about an aura of culture, richness and diversity to it.-Window To News
