The club for creativity and some laughs
If you are clueless about how to spend your weekends, we suggest you join Giggle, a group where people meet and chit chat. They are also open to people writing scripts, doing illustrations, craft and arts.
The group was started in 2011 as a club for kids where they could come together and do something creative. Realising that teens and adults also need such a platform, the group enlarged its membership.
Pinal Rahul Deshpande, one of the founders of the group, says that they try to blend ideas and encourage people from different professions to come together and discuss and ensure that new ideas come out of it.
“We paint, write, and do many such activities. It is not done for commercial purposes but we do showcase the work done. if some ideas have a commercial value we are open to it but we don’t meet for any commercial purpose,” states Deshpande.
While their membership is limited at the moment they hope to reach out to more youngsters in the age group of 20 to 30 years.
“Such groups are better than just going to malls or watching movies. We have IT professionals, pre-school teachers and young mothers as members,” adds Deshpande, emphasising that they aim to help people gain confidence, problem solving and decision-making skills, get them to explore the creative and imaginative potential and motivate them to learn new things.
The venue is stocked with materials such as foam sheets, quilling strips, handmade paper, stickers, embossers, patterned papers, pompoms, pipe cleaners, beads and embellishments so that you can give free rein to your creativity.
On: June 30 (they meet on Sundays, 5 pm to 8 pm)
At: G8, second floor, Konark Campus, Viman Nagar.
