When a Physics graduate with expertise in Fashion Design decided to follow her passion from childhood, her soul was mirrored physically in the form of CraftS2dio, a unique design brand that is today a popular space for handmade home décor and upcycled /recycled décor products.
Shobha Mohata, the founder says “Being brought up in a joint family means that special occasions at home and festivals bring about different duties being chalked out for everyone until everything is taken care of. But the same job of making décor for these was reserved for me, simply because I would grab the opportunity every time. Growing up in Kolkata, I used to participate enthusiastically in making décor for Pooja pandals using sola wood. My designs gained a lot of appreciation and that got me interested in taking up art as a business.”
Starting out as an enterprise in 2016, Shobha marketed her creations for the first time in Bengaluru at Sakhi, one of The Lalit Ashok’s annual exhibitions. By 2019, Crafts2dio crept into the limelight and became a full-fledged enterprise.
Spreading creativity with insightful workshops
Shobha Mohata is an ArtPreneur and an ArtEducator. Today, CraftS2dio is not just a trusted and creative space for home décor items, but also an institution because it creates a valuable knowledge base in the field of art through carefully curated workshops and innovative DIY kits. Shobha has conducted workshops for corporations like Google, Toys R Us, Itsy Bitsy, Project Eve, Commvault and other groups of enthusiastic learners. “As a trainer, my hard work is rewarded when the participants are happy with the outcome of the workshop,” says Shobha.
