In school, Paper Mache was a popular art and craft subject that taught us the value of recycling at an early age. It gave a new life to paper by soaking it in glue and water. To take you on an old school adventure, we bring to you the prestigious Meghraj Samman awardee, Mr. Rakesh Vyas, your curator of this special Paper Mache Art Experience straight from Jaipur.
Paper Mache literally means ‘chewed paper’, ‘pulped paper’, or ‘mashed paper’. It is a composite material consisting of paper pieces or pulp, sometimes reinforced with textiles, bound with an adhesive, such as glue, starch, or wallpaper paste. Artists make use of paper strips glued together with adhesive, and paper pulp obtained by soaking paper to which glue is then added.
Did you know? Paper mache sculptures are used to create idols of Gods and Goddesses for various Hindu festivals like Durga Puja, Ganesh Chaturthi, and more.
Mr. Rakesh Vyas has participated in fairs and exhibitions both in Rajasthan and Delhi. He trains kids in schools and NGOs. He derives a lot of satisfaction in his work. He enjoys seeing how adults and kids, both get involved in this art after a bit of hesitation. He loves to create Paper Mache designs on his terrace, be it summer or winters.
Join Rakesh Vyas for a hands-on workshop on paper mache on his terrace studio as he decodes this ancient artform. Create a handcrafted mask, a little bowl, or a pen stand and take it home along with the unforgettable experience, a newly-learnt skill, the infinite memories, and the connection you have built.
