Handmade art kit with the tools & guidance to transform your art:
• Handwoven newspaper basket supporting local artisans
• 3-piece tracing template set for basket pieces
• 1 set of small colored pencils in a cloth bag
• Instruction card
• Reusable cotton cloth bag with hand-painted & hand-stitched logo
All you need is a larger sheet of paper (letter-sized or larger, recycled is great and thicker is better). When we pause to consider what we would like to receive, the power of intention can help us realize our dreams. With this kit you are invited to create art and then transform it into a basket.
The ancient craft of basketry is revived and personalized through the courageous act of creating and transforming your art. The mindset while making this basket allows contemplation and reflection within, potentially helping process patterns of consumption, giving and receiving as well as change.
Sankalpa is a powerful Sanskrit word meaning intention, affirmation, resolution, determination and willpower. This name guided the journey through pioneering challenges to manifest this dream.Creativity is a common and unifying force between all cultures, and the Sankalpa art center found its place in the International Zone of Auroville, within walking distance to nearby villages and central Auroville. Today the art center is actively hosting a variety of individual and group expressive art therapy sessions for all ages and backgrounds, workshops, trainings, collaborations and much more! Proceeds from art kits benefit the organization and the individuals who put them together!
