Description – This is part of a wider project, Rangoli: art that binds. Through a series of collaborative workshops both in Wales and India, the team want to learn about rangoli/mandana/kolam and share some of their own 2D animation skills in return. The studio will be open to the public, so please come along – they’d love to meet you. Opening times will be available each day by 10am IST, on twitter @winding_snake, or on our FB page, Facebook.com/Winding Snake. Amy Morris, Winding Snake Productions Managing Director says “ I have always admired rangoli, growing up in the UK with an Indian Grandmother, I remember being fascinated by the patterns and designs made at diwali, and during a previous trip to India, I spoke with many, who stated that rangoli is not art!, I disagree. I think that the skill and creativity it takes to create rangoli should be celebrated.” After their trip, the team will produce a short 2D animated film celebrating the skills and knowledge of rangoli. In addition the Winding Snake team will visit schools, universities and Girl guiding groups between India and Wales to share their experiences. Rangoli: art that binds is a project about friendship; between art and culture; between international artists and international arts organisations; a friendship between India and Wales that brings people in both India and Wales together to share something beautiful. This project is funded by Wales Arts International, British Council Wales, First Campus and Film Cyrus Wales as part of India Wales, a major season of artistic collaboration between the two countries to mark the UK-India Year of Culture and has been developed by Amy Morris for Winding Snake Productions.
