Moreover, the festival will celebrate interesting elements like an open mic for poets, a musical evening, rhymes, and rhythm. Master Artist Lalitbhai will be passing secrets of Lippan art to the participants. Lippan art is made of clay or bamboo chips plastered in a mixture of river clay. The Lippan designs on the walls, partitions, doorways, lintels, niches, and floors are elaborate decorations that consist of textures created by the impressions of fingers and palms - and mirror inlay work. Art The ten-day festival will also feature a curated assortment of paintings that will be on display at the art gallery in the store.
