Artisan Craft Exhibition: By Hand, from the Heart

My new venture got another great chance to showcase and sell my work. My sister who is a textile designer and pro in her field was having her exhibition at Chennai, India. Read more here.

She offered me a chance to sell my art works too and I started working upon it. More base fabrics, more paints and I was working in my full-swing super excited!! I even made hand-painted sarees this time with motifs of birds, dragonfly etc. While my Eco-friendly canvas bags were mostly of birds and abstracts.

Finally we reached there, had a good stay, settled up our stall and had a superb show :)
It was a great experience to exhibit my hand-crafted products there. A lot of people to interact and deal with. The response was great and sale too. My paintings were appreciated by all age-groups and bird-bags were certainly a hit! I even got later orders :)
