Rural Art and Craft
Handicraft is another identity of West Bengal. It is a nice choice to showcase someone’s creativity with talent. The Government of West Bengal now encouraging handicraft artists to establish their own small businesses by giving them a platform to sell their products under the banner of Biswa Bangla Shilpi Haat.
I have visited this Shilpi Haat at Kawakhali ( a place near Siliguri town). Government organizes this Haat in every month and artists from different districts of West Bengal come to sell their creative items.
This is a nice place to visit and if you are an art lover then it is the perfect place for you. You will get to see different kind of handicrafts including unique sarees, ornaments, home decor items and furniture as well. Artists showcase their work with great passion and that passion brings their ultimate creation alive.
Nice colour combination and beautiful work can give your eyes a great pleasure and satisfaction. You may lose yourself in the waves of creativity while visiting this place and talking to those artists. These artists have the ability to transform a bamboo to an attractive lampshade or a simple stone to a gorgeous ornament. It is all about an imagination turn into reality.
If you are in love with art and craft than I suggest you to visit this place at least once whenever you are travelling to West Bengal.
