Creative minds make delicate waste products

Nagpur: In schools, children learn how to make the best of waste. But in a workshop organized by South Central Zone Cultural Centre (SCZCC), city-based artists and painters took the concept to a high level with creative minds making some of the finest pieces of art.

The center has come up with an innovative idea where scrap and unnecessary items are collected in different organizations and offices to make the best out of the waste. The workshop, titled’ Scrap Workshop,’ will be held at SCZCC from 22 to 28 February. Students and artists demonstrate the best of their ability to produce beautiful objects.

Milind Limbekar, a painter and artist, has taken on the task of using scrap wood to make a huge selfie frame. “I’m working on making a major selfie point that will mimic Nagpur oranges, Zero Mile horses and many more. Hard to do wooden work was a bit difficult but the process was enjoyable, “he said.

Another artist who participates in the workshop, Manoj Chopade, has made a feminine figure of a Bharatanatyam dancer. “I used full scrap metal to piece together the figure. I added descriptions of the dancer’s dress pleats and stance, “he said.

Raw and scrap material such as halogen lights, sheets of metal, and spotlights are given to the artists who make the best of it. “I made a kinetic sculpture for which I used material for the medium metal scrap. Local artists have a great opportunity to show creativity through the craft, “Shekhar Tandekar said.

Students from the fine arts department support these artists and also learn the skills of precision creating these humongous objects. “It was a very successful session, as we are assisting the artists. Every day, we are learning new things, “said fine arts student Nilesh Varbhe.

The event is coordinated by Shashank Dande, program officer at SCZCC, with Muktadevi Mohite, head of the fine arts department. Scarp material is made available to the artists.

Dande said, “This is a great opportunity for fine arts department students as they spend quality time learning and understanding the art. Artists have teams of students and helpers who see to weld and arrange, “he said.

“The laboratory aims to teach people about the importance of turning waste material into eye-catchy artistic pieces of art. Scrap material was collected and provided to the artists whose creative minds immediately began making the best out of it, “Mohite said.
