The session on gift-bag making workshop was held on 19 December 2016 at the Mithram Special School for the intellectually disadvantaged. Margaret Lanzetta a New York based artist exhibiting at Kashi Art Gallery had brought with her a set of beautiful designs she had carved out on pieces of Styrofoam (blocks) based on the theme ‘green’ and ‘Kerala’. The idea was to dip the blocks into different coloured paints and press them onto the gift bags.The 15 students were excited to work with the blocks, and coordination and creativity were almost effortless. The students were given a free-hand to make different patterns with the blocks provided.
