BENGALURU: Ever imagined if you could craft wonders at your leisure and at the same time accrue skills for yourself that will stay for you for the rest of your life?
Crafty Beavers, a three-day workshop that runs from July 6 to 8, aims to train the participants to go beyond the theoretical work and get their hands on doing something creative.
The workshop across three days will involve applique work and block printing on fabrics on the first day in order to create utility folders. The second day will focus on glass painting, while the last day will give tips and tricks on acrylic painting. All the days will teach the participants to do something useful with the things created.

Claiming to be a ‘one-of-its-kind’ creative studio in the country, Carol Pinto, the brain behind Bloom and grow, said “This podium welcomes artists from across the country and sometimes abroad to get a hang of skill sets across a wide spectrum.”
“Since our inception in 2012, we have created a demand for such creative outlets in the city that has seen a huge inflow of interests in the recent past,” she stated.
