The Pomegranate Workshop

Creative Energies At Work

There was once a flower in bloom into which many ants had crawled.

Suddenly the flower closed and the ants were trapped inside!

They made little eggs and stayed in there forever and the first Pomegranate was born!

That was how Hannah Kagalwala a 12 year old participant in The Pomegranate Workshop™'s summer program this year chose to explain and depict the ‘origin’ of the pomegranate!

Hannah decided to give the pomegranate her own “origin myth” at our tribal art session which highlighted the art and origin myths of the Gond tribals of Madhya Pradesh in central India.

After viewing fascinating works on canvas which depictedstories on the origin of the universe, plants and being by Gond tribal artist Venkatraman Singh Shyam from Bhopal, Hannah and her friends set to work coming up with whacky (and sometimes serious) origin myths of their own.

The result was pure fun, imagination and hard work.

That’s what we do at The Pomegranate Workshop™ – provide triggers for creativity and then watch as you let yourselves go. And that is pretty much our approach towards various creative disciplines – art and craft, story writing, illustration, sculpture, performing arts, nature based sessions and sometimes a little bit of everything – in structured modules that layer multiple disciplines and focus on self expression and experiential learning.

The result as you will see on these pages, is a serious approach to bringing out latent forms of expression.

The theatre sessions helped my son overcome his inhibitions and he loved the writing sessions. To put it in my child's own words "no answer is right or wrong". It helped me put things in perspective as well.

Parents Feedback

It was indeed an inspiring experience for the children and also for all of us at the center. The interactive methods, varied materials and techniques triggered off the thought process among the children which led them to their own creations and self expression…we look forward to working with The Pomegranate Workshop in the future.

School and Other Institutions Feedback

This is Teesta Rawal here. I attended the Screenplay Workshop at Prabhadevi from May 1-10. I really enjoyed the workshop. I felt that it was a great opportunity for me to learn something new, which I definitely did. It was a great experience and it was even better because someone as experienced as Ragini miss was conducting it.
