The tradition of Khavda Terracotta Hand Painted Pottery is solely kept alive by Master Potter Kumbhar Abdula Ibrahimand his family who live and work in Khavda, northern Kutch.
Using ‘Rannkamitti’ from a nearby lake, the potter shapes his creation on a wheel then leaves it to dry in the shade. Then Kumbhar women use red, black, and white clay-based paints to decorate the pottery before it is further dried in the sun and baked.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

They will make one small pot which they can carry home to paint. In addition, the potter will give each participant one finished pot/plate/bowl to be painted on the spot.
