Tholu Works: Products in Leather

In Hyderabad, with the Crafts Council of Andhra Pradesh, I worked with the artisans practicing Tholu Bommalata. The intent was to create newer dimensions to the light and shadow play into different products, other than dancing puppets.  The artisans were very open minded and we created Screens,  Lamp Shades, Bookmarks with narratives from epics handwritten and drawn on them, Folders, Key Chains, et al. This was a very interesting workshop as it involved the use of leather as the only material for all- structure, forms and paraphernalia.
