Hast Karigar Society, a Delhi based NGO that promotes traditional skill and creations of the artisans and weavers while encouraging them to be contemporary and economically relevant,  is bringing its annual Bazaar for the First time to Pune.  The Traditional Arts of India are so diverse that even most Indians are

not aware of the many myriad hues and forms that India has to offer. Keeping the spirit of Make-in-India, alive, the spring bazaar, Impressions celebrates Traditional Indian Weaves, Paintings and Crafts.


In the new era of technology, industrialization and modernization we often overlook our rich heritage

and tradition of art and craft, our nation's pride and assets. With an aim to ensure that craftsmen continue to create their craft, and earn a sustainable income and encourage their children to continue the tradition by passing it on to them and thus ensuring that the art form stays alive, Hast Karigar Society organizes editions of Impressions across the country. Over 12 National and State awardee artisans from over 16 States in India will showcase traditional Indian arts like Gond Painting, Phad, Kalamkari, Battik, Palm Leaf Craft, Miniature Painting, Pattachitra etc. The Spring Bazaar will be a kaleidoscope of Indian heritage and tradition with artisans expressing their creations out of their unique skill and style.
