So Surajkund wasn’t enough to satiate your handicraft cravings? Dastakar’s Basant Bazaar should. This spring festival is bringing together around 140 craft groups from 19 States.

With more than 15 new designers who are showcasing tradition and contemporary innovations in soft furnishings and garments, accessories and gift items, along with natural, herbal and organic products, the event has a lot in store.

Themed around the lotus flower that stands for rebirth and creation, this year, the bazaar focuses on North Eastern cultural traditions. The main highlight, however, are the crafts workshops that guests can participate in. These include workshops ranging from Mothi-bharat beadwork and enamelling to Madhubani; terracotta pottery to Gond painting; papier-mâché to Phad and Kalamkari illustrations. And, there will be awesome food too!
