malavika mandal andrew


Malavika also an art educator has been running Malavika Mandal Andrew’s Creative Course (MMACC), teaching “Design creativity” and conducting & organizing workshops. Her workshops fall in two categories: fun, aimed at people of all ages who wish to expand their creativity or professional, aimed at people who wish to practical exposure to the industry and refine their existing skills.


The source of Visualization, Imagination, realization and execution is derived from nature.  “Nurturing Creativity In Surface Ornamentation” (NCSO) aims at creative development along with nature. Participants will learn different tools to understand and manipulate space, learn how to use simple existing elements to design and work with different mediums to make their artwork, products and exhibitions more clear and innovative.                   


Here at NCSO we not only nurture your creativity but also developing ideas and execution plans, understanding the market/customer, gaining confidence in yourself and challenging yourself enabling you to execute through any medium like textile, paper, wood etc. and in any areas like home décor, jewellery design, fibre art, furniture design etc.
