About the Workshop

Originated in Bhilwara region of Rajasthan Phad paintings are rhe part of an elaborate depiction of song-and-dance performance by a pair of balladeers, usually a priest and his wife – called bhopa and bhopi – belonging to the Rabari tribe of nomadic cattle and camel herders.

Earlier they were created on the handwoven cloth, soaked overnight to make the threads thicker.

It is believed, came to the members of the Rabari tribe when they realised that there was no one fixed temple that they could visit. So, instead, they created temples that could visit them.
