Aztec Bracelets Workshop: Aztec designs are the symbol of ancient Mesoamerican civilization. The abstract, geometrical designs are very popular and have been adapted in different art forms including tattoo, pottery and fabric designs. To understand the art of Aztec Bracelet, Rajasthan Studio curated a Aztec Bracelets Workshop and invited Pragya Goenka. She is a third-year Industrial Designing Student from the National Institute of Designing. Pragya loves to explore folk art and local crafts and favours sustainable art. 

The Aztec Bracelets Workshop Began

Pragya began the aztec bracelets workshop talking about types of yarns used to make Aztec designed bracelets. She also told the circle members that the process of weaving these yarns is similar to that of macrame. The bracelet making process began by Pragya cutting 6 strings of three different colour yarns in one-meter length each. Then she tied all six strings together in a loop and began weaving them together. Pragya was also patiently explaining each step slowly to the participants. The artist displayed bracelets with various designs she had made earlier. She began by teaching a hitch-knot way of creating square designs and then ended the workshop by demonstrating how to make a heart-shaped design with the same hitch-knot. 

Towards The End Of The Workshop

Participants were making Aztec Bracelets using different materials like Jute, wool and embroidery yarn. They displayed their bracelets on camera and impressed Pragya. It was a fun and interactive aztec bracelets experience curated by Rajasthan Studio to bring together like-minded creative heads.  Participants joined from different parts of the country and were of different age groups but their love for art brought them together on the same platform. Rajasthan Studio was as well successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
