Dhokra Casting in India

This video is a compilation of photos from the dhokra village and video from the dhokra workshop we attended while in Santiniketan at the Santiniketan School of Visual Art and Design.
A few of my Experimental Dhokra Pieces

Dhokra is a lost wax casting technique and the closed casting method is only used two places in the world. One of the professors who took us is the professor for the small metals department and was incredibly excited about this part of the trip. West Bengal, India is one and the other is in South Africa.

There were three craftsmen from one of the dhokra villages that came to help with the workshop.

Be sure to check out my other India and art videos on YouTube.
