About

Madhubani Art

The Art from a sacred land  

Madhubani/Mithila Painting, meaning Forest of Honey can be traced back to the 7th century AD

In the Indian subcontinent, the state of Bihar.

 

Madhubani paintings were traditionally created by the women of different communities, of the Mithila region, and done on freshly plastered mud (cow dung) on walls and floors of huts, but now they are also done on cloth, handmade paper and canvas.

Madhubani art uses complex geometrical patterns. There are specific themes in Madhubani paintings including nature.  

Ideal for those

who are

looking to:

  • ​Learn from a professional working artist

  • Learn traditional and contemporary art techniques

  • Push their creativity and experience something new

  • Create art mindfully and increase a feeling of wellbeing and creative revitalisation

You don’t need previous experience to join; just an interest in working with geometric patterns and unleashing your creativity.

Introducing the Tree Of Life workshop. This unique workshop has been designed to offer a mindful experience whilst creating your very own personalised Tree Of Life painting. The perfect way to start the New Year. 

 

The Tree of Life is an ancient mystical symbol appearing in various cultures from the Mayans to the Celts, Buddhism to Nordic mythology. It has been found to represent physical and spiritual nourishment, transformation and liberation, union and fertility. 

 

In Indian folk art the bountiful tree is the focal point of the composition, surrounded by several birds and animals that reap the benefits.

You will take home your own beautifully painted masterpiece.

Testimonial

I have now completed 3 classes and enjoyed each one. Komal can teach people of different ability and experience while creating a lovely learning atmosphere. Komal’s introduction to, and explanation of Madhubani Art is clear and insightful, and the whole experience is positive and encouraging. I look forward to booking more classes.
