2. Creating Rangoli and Kolam Together
Rangoli (also known as Kolam) is an eye-catching traditional Indian art that adorns the entryways and courtyards of homes during Deepavali and other celebratory festivals. Households sometimes even have their own designs that are passed down from one generation to the next, keeping the art form and tradition alive.
The beauty of Rangoli lies in its versatility – simple patterns work just as well as intricate ones! Create along our very own Singaporean Rangoli and Kolam master Vijaya Mohan, as she demonstrates the techniques, materials, and designs used in creating the ancient art of Rangoli. Learn how Rangoli and Kolam are different, and try making your own eye-catching piece to usher prosperity into your home this Deepavali!
Vijaya Mohan is a renowned international Rangoli and Kolam artist and has transformed this age-old tradition, spreading awareness about it all over the world. A trained art therapist and special educator, she has conducted hundreds of workshops, created over 8,000 Rangolis in museums, community centres and hotels, and counts Air Indian and British Airways as her past clients. She also holds the Guinness World Record for single-handedly painting the largest Rangoli in the world, amongst other records.
