‘Khavda’ pottery is an art form of Khavda, North Kutch . While the men do all the throwing in terracotta, the women handle all the surface decoration which in this northern Kutch village of Ludia is primarily in the form of painting.

The potter gets mud from a specific acre (A lake) area near village. It is called ‘Rann ka mitti’. To make the mud finer, the artist grinds and sieves it. Then the potters put the mud in water for some time and it becomes soft enough to be given any desired shape. This soft clay is shaped into a pot on a potter’s wheel and left to dry in shade, then Kumbhar women use red, black, and white clay-based paints to decorate each piece of pottery with distinct community-specific designs.

After a while, it is cleaned and put in the sun to dry and then baked in a furnace, powered by simple and locally available fuels of dry wood and cow dung. The vessels are coated with a thin wash of geru (red color). The pots of Khavda get their red colour from Geru, a type of soil (ocher/ umber), and the black and white dots and stripes are also made with natural material. The potter’s wife then uses a frayed bamboo twig to paint motifs in clay-based white colors. Finished pieces lie aside, ready for drying. The terracotta pots of Khavda are distinct from the ones we may see elsewhere, because of their painting and form which is a result of repeated cleaning at every stage of the process of their making. The artist will bring with him natural colours (red, black & white), bamboo brushes also for the workshop participants. The artist will bring some unpainted small plates/bowls/pots for the workshop participants to paint on. Each participant will be provided these materials required for making one small pot (this pot will be kept 1 hr-2 hrs under the Sun for drying and can be painted at participant’s home only) and one pot (done by artist, but not painted) to paint on-spot. So each participant can take back two pots at the end of workshop.

Finally there will be a display cum sale of the artists masterpieces.
