Meet Our Team
The Hobby Place is Mysore’s one of a kind Creative Studio and Hobby Center, offering a variety of classes and workshops throughout the year, for the young & old, for the aspiring, experienced and the recreational art enthusiasts in a spacious, calm and beautiful ambience!
We have on board a team of highly talented, welcoming and enthusiastic artists who have years of experience teaching various art forms for different skill levels.
Apart from the training facility, we conduct special cultural events and workshops; birthday parties, kitty parties, corporate events and private lessons. We also undertake orders for one of a kind painting, customized pottery, a mural, kitchenware or a handcrafted gift.
In keeping with our philosophy to renew and re-create awareness for dwindling art forms, we conduct regular classes in traditional Indian art forms such as Mysore art, Tanjore art, Ganjifa, Miniature Indian Paintings, Rajasthani Mural, Kerala Mural, Madhubani, Warli to name a few. We also invite ancestral artists from various parts of the country to conduct workshops in rare dying art forms such as Chowki/Kinnal art from Koppal district, Madhubani artists from Bihar and the tribal Warli artists from Maharashtra.
At the Hobby Place, we constantly try to be as inclusive, eco-friendly and socially responsible as possible. We frequently partner with local non-profits & schools for the specially abled & less privileged, to give back to our community.
Our studio is open to independent artists and artisans to showcase and sell their works, as an attempt to encourage and sustain them.
Our clay is chemical free and most other hobby materials are hand made by rural folks in India.
At the Hobby Place, we aim to make it fun, convenient and a social experience , for an individual to pursue a hobby for her/his holistic development. Our mission is to educate, produce, promote and preserve great work, to be socially responsible and to have fun doing it all!
We believe, there are friends to be made, artists to be encouraged, culture to be exchanged and above all, fun to be had.
