With Ganesh Chaturthi around the corner, selecting an idol is a much-awaited practice for Mumbaikars. An eco-friendly idol-making workshop being organised for children seems like an ideal way to create awareness about environment-sensitive ideas around the popular festival.
Jangri Jasani of Centre for Environmental Research & Education (CERE) shares, "We have been conducting this workshop for the past decade to show people how to move away from the common methods of idol making using Plaster of Paris that is very harmful to the environment." Participants will be able to make their own idol using a special mix of clay, common waste material and papier mâche created by CERE.
ON: September 9, 2 pm to 4 pm
AT: Education Centre, Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Byculla East.
COST: Rs 150
