Kraftgurus’ mantra is: Learn, Create, Grow. Founded by Nilanjana, its creation is inspired by the love of her homeland, India, and its arts. Kraftgurus aims to expand the experience of the exceptional arts-crafts heritage of India through workshops-courses, handmade products and offbeat experiences.
Beyond inspiring your own works, Kraftgurus seeks to spread the knowledge of the intricacies of Indian arts and crafts. The work of Kraftgurus combines storytelling with art practices in order to learn the significance of colours, figures and symbols which are used in Indian art.
Set up to support the prize-winning artist based in India that Kraftgurus collaborates with, it has now expanded to work in various ways in order to increase not just representations of Indian art practices, but knowledge of. The work of Kraftgurus encourages us to expand our understanding of the art which we so often enjoy without knowing just how many stories each element tells.
