The Crafts Museum is a repository and a celebration of the handmade. Making by hand continues to be a fundamental activity across India, and the abundant and diverse craft traditions have produced myriad objects of exceptional skill and beauty. The Crafts Museum houses some of the finest of these. Unlike most museums, which display dead or old or rare objects, this is a museum of living crafts, of skills and objects still in common use. The Museum's Craft Demonstration Programme each month is an opportunity to discover these, to explore the sophisticated knowledge and techniques, as well as the histories, legends and folklore that are embedded in the rich craft heritage of the country.
