Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

On our visit to Thimphu, the capitol of Bhutan we visited the Buddhist Arts and Crafts School where traditions are carefully passed from older to younger crafts people. We saw textiles (weaving, sewing, embroidery), woodwork, painting, sculpture, costumery and more. Young people sat quietly working on their projects, used to visitors passing through with their guides. Thanks to this traditional school there is a constant supply of creative young artists ready to supply the homes, temples and government buildings of Bhutan with all their favourite artworks.

Thanks to the Daily Post I remembered these inspiring youngsters and their important role in maintaining the creative works of their country.

  1. How interesting. I suppose one can learn to become artistic, given the right teaching and environment. I’ve always believed I can’t paint or sculpt, but I’ve never really tried.

  2. It’s so important to maintain and pass along some of these traditions. I think it’s wonderful when the younger generation appreciate the traditions and want to learn.
