    These pieces have just hatched, breaking out from the clay shells. They have to be cleaned, buffed and polished.

  • Yesterday Devrai Art Village celebrated its 10th birthday!

    Yesterday Devrai Art Village celebrated its 10th birthday!
    It was under the Umbar tree where the Nandi is sitting in one of the pictures, that it all began with 3 craftsmen from Gadchiroli and Suresh sir. Now we are around 40 men and women, growing like a large joint family!
    Happy to announce that Devrai Art Village will be hosting 50 Adivasi apprentices for a one year training program as part of an 'Artisan Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Arts' project sponsored by the government. We have also started a branch in Gadchiroli involving the local Adivasis there. Needless to say that without Suresh sir's dedication and commitment to his people and sustaining the tribal arts, Devrai Art Village would just have remained a beautiful idea!

  • Happy Birthday Devrai Art Village!

    Happy Birthday Devrai Art Village!
    Ten years ago on 9 th Oct Devrai Art Village was officially registered as an NGO. It gives me immense happiness to share that last week at the Art Educators Conference held at New Delhi and organised by IADEA(Indian Art and Design Educators Association), I was awarded the Runner Up trophy in the category for 'Instilling Creative Confidence'.
    Never imagined that a vague desire to try out the fusion of metal with stone would would give a new dimension to the traditional Dhokra art and that we would get a patent for this never tried before idea! I feel truly blessed to have been able to conceive the idea of Rock Dhokra which helped us evolve the traditional Dhokra Art to explore new creative design ideas universal in appeal but truly Indian in spirit.
