:: Workshop on the craft of Chadar Badani Darich.org
When we discovered that the rare and unique art of Chadar Badani puppetry is practically extinct amongst the Santals in Purulia, we organized a workshop for them. Som Murmu master craftsman from Birbhum was brought in as trainer or Guru-Hor. We could afford only a ten day workshop, but the basic skills and techniques were taught , much to the delight of the students. As Som Murmu kept telling his students, the final product would all depend upon the artist`s creativity.
