Madhubani Painting is also known as Mithila Painting and means Forest of Honey. It dates back to the 7th century AD and began in the Mithila region of Bihar in the Indian subcontinent.

The women from the different regions traditionally created Madhubani paintings. They painted on the freshly plastered mud (cow dung) walls and floors of huts, but now they are also use cloth, handmade paper and canvas.

When you study Madhubani art you will notice the complex geometrical patterns and three main themes:

  • Religious, (Gods)
  • Social (what you see in your society & community) 
  • Nature, (mountains, rivers, animals etc).

During your class Komal leads you step by step in the art of Madhubani Painting; including how to create the complex border designs. She has created a bespoke pattern-training sheet for you to use and you’ll draw the repeat patterns traditionally used in Indian folk art. You will also be working with carefully selected resources for inspiration.
