Madhubani art workshop at Nepura

Madhubani Painting Workshop in Nepura
By Nepura Village Tourism Development Committee

A Madhubani Painting  Workshop was organised in Nepura by the Nepura Village Tourism Development Committee in the months of September and October 2010. About 20 artisans of the Anchala Ladies Cooperative (Nepura) participated in the workshop. Madhubani Art  is a traditional craft of North Bihar, whose popularity has increased in recent years.  The Anchala Ladies Cooperative wished to incorporate this craft and enrich the skill set of the cooperative. Nepura Cooperative is known for Sujuni souvenirs based on local Buddhist stories. Artisans create art (sujuni, khatwa,and Madhubani) around Buddhist stories from the local area, including Rajgriha, Nalanda and other nearby villages. The workshop was deemed a success as most of their products sold.
