Bamboo Craft Workshop organised for Students of GMS Chann Khatriyan Zone Hiranagar

KATHUA, MARCH 02: A workshop was today organized at Government Middle School Chann Khatrian to impart Bamboo Craft training to the students 

The initiative, in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, aims to promote vocational craft among the students and develop their skills in traditional art forms.

The workshop provided students with hands-on experience in bamboo craft techniques, enabling them to explore their creativity and enhance their skills. The Head of Institution highlighted the importance of this workshop in preserving our cultural heritage and the NEP’s focus on experiential learning and skill development.

During the workshop, students were taught various techniques, including bamboo bending, splitting, and weaving. They were able to apply these techniques to create functional and decorative items such as baskets, mats, and ornaments. The workshop not only allowed them to showcase their newfound abilities but also instilled a sense of pride in their cultural heritage.

Participants remarked on the workshop’s impact on their creative abilities and the opportunity to learn a traditional craft. One student stated, “I never knew that bamboo could be transformed into such beautiful pieces of art. This workshop has opened my eyes to the possibilities of working with natural materials and has inspired me to explore more creative outlets.”

Another student shared, “The workshop not only taught us the technical aspects of bamboo craft but also allowed us to appreciate the hard work and craftsmanship that goes into creating these beautiful items. Now I have a newfound respect for the artisans who work with bamboo.”

Teachers also expressed enthusiasm for the workshop and its contribution to the students’ overall development. “Hands-on activities like these play a crucial role in fostering creativity and improving problem-solving skills among students. It was incredible to see them immerse themselves in the craft and witness their pride in showcasing their creations,” said a teacher.

The successful completion of the Bamboo Craft workshop marks a significant milestone in GMS Chann Khatrian School’s efforts to promote vocational craft courses and preserve traditional art forms. The students’ enthusiasm and the skills they have acquired during the workshop serve as a testament to the importance of such initiatives in shaping their holistic development.

As the curtains draw on the workshop, the school looks forward to showcasing the students’ creations in an upcoming exhibition. This event will provide the students with an opportunity to further display their talent and craftsmanship to a wider audience.

 In conclusion, the Bamboo Craft workshop organized by GMS Chann Khatrian School has successfully nurtured the students’ creative abilities and developed their skills in traditional art forms. This initiative not only aligns with the NEP’s vision of promoting vocational courses but also ensures the preservation of our rich cultural heritage.
