This DIY kit brings together an ancient Indian game and traditional art form in a customisable format.
Put together your game board (in the form of a simple jigsaw), and decorate it in the Gond art style. The handout tells you the story of the artisan, the game and helps you paint & create your game board and pieces in the artform. The placement of snakes and ladders can be changed every time you play to create a new setup.
The artwork for this kit has been done in collaboration with traditional artisans who will receive a portion of the proceeds.
Also available in Kalamkari art form.
