Graphic artist and designer Sid Ghosh made The Goodwill Shop’s glass-painting workshop on Saturday look easy, as usual. He offered the participants designs that they could trace onto glass with a special pen, and after the ink was dry, taught them to fill in the colour. Yes, it was as easy as it sounds! The entire process, that took four hours, resulted in some new artists!
While Basavraj, who flew in from Mumbai, wins hands-down for his enthusiasm to try something new; Anju, our domestic help’s daughter, who has just completed her Class X and is an extremely bright student, was the quietest and most dedicated of the lot. And, of course, we loved Supriya for making sure the organisers weren’t bored, thanks to joining in our chatter! As always, Sid Ghosh was the star of the show.
