The ongoing summer classes being held at CIDCO’s Urban Haat from 1 st May, 2019 onwards received excellent response this year. Offering a range of activities to suit the taste and interest of participants, the event saw participation from young and old alike. The main objective of exposing individuals to unique activities and help them shape their overall personality and enhance their skill set through these hobby classes was achieved successfully.

Students, housewives and senior citizens showed great enthusiasm by participating in the summer classes. The hobby classes for Madhubani painting and Warli painting saw full participation as 10 students enrolled and learned the art and craft forms from the best artisans on the job. Block printing was another hobby class that witnessed maximum participation from students and housewives.

Master craftsmen and artisans exposed the participants to the right technique and helped them develop the accurate skill set for the craft in a short span of 10 days. Engaging and informative sessions about the history of the craft and its uniqueness was highly appreciated by the audience.

Looking at the success rate of the ongoing summer classes, CIDCO Urban Haat will commence its next batch from 21st to 31st May, 2019. Open to all age groups, CIDCO urges individuals to take advantage of the classes and participate in large numbers.
