    shadow puppets workshop
In October 1997, India Foundation of the Arts and Prakash Garud of Bala Baliga organized a Shadow-Play Workshop at Dharwad, in Karnataka. I was invited to provide new designs for shadow puppets based on the traditional leather puppet art of Karnataka. During this process I got to interact with traditional puppeteers and various theatre people and at the end of a period of 3 months, I designed about 30 puppets and got them executed on leather with students from the Dharwad fine art colleges. The play has been successfully playing since then.
