India Craft Week
India Craft Week
India Craft Week, launched in 2018, is a festival dedicated to supporting craftspersons and artisans through a curated exhibition and sale. It brings together traditional masters and contemporary innovators along with Indian and international designers, brands, galleries, institutions and organisations with craft at their core. A symposium, demonstrations, masterclasses, workshops, installations, screenings and folk performances are among the highlights.
Fashion designers Anju Modi and Rahul Mishra, educationist Darlie Koshy, filmmaker Muzaffar Ali and product design manager Revathi Kant are some of the speakers to have been part of the India Craft Week, which took place again in 2019 and 2021. The fourth edition of the festival was held in October 2022 and showcased Rogan art products made by Padma Shri awardee Abdul Gafur Khatri, a pashmina shawl created by Jammu & Kashmir state awardee Khwaja Nazir Ali from Srinagar, Dhokra sculptures created by national award winner Rajendra Baghel from Chaattisgarh and much more.
The upcoming fifth edition of the India Craft Week will be held between 02 and 05 November 2023.
