Indian food is extremely diverse and rich. Every state in India has its own speciality food, not one but many. They are based on the climatic influences, people, culture  and the produce grown in that particular region.

Every month we have planned to enlighten you with details of one of our classes and give a glimpse on how we proceed with the making of the art or craft. This month we are showcasing a course very unique and interesting known as 'Miniature food making'. These hand made look alike pieces are made out of polymer clay and can be customised into showcase pieces or magnets. Even the plates, spoons and bowls are made out of clay. These tiny pieces of excellence can be made to order as well. They make excellent gift options.

One of our major accomplishment in miniature food art is our collection of sweets and savouries from the 29 different states of India.

This huge project in particular involved a lot of research as we had to find a sweet particular to a state. In total we had selected 29 unique sweet dishes representing each region. Then it was essential to learn the art of making them traditionally. Even though they are recreated as clay miniatures it is necessary to capture the essence of the whole product in real. The texture, colour and structure are the major details that were recorded and taken into account while making the miniatures. We did not miss even the minute details of these scrumptious desserts.

We at Sapthavarna Creations, offer you several art and craft classes, both online and in person. You can call us or email and enquire about these classes. All our classes are structured and can be customised based on your timing and choice of learning.
