A good craftsman can manipulate any material, whether wood or glass, paper or clay, into an object of use. The use may even be aesthetic. To achieve this he/she must be skilled in using his hands effectively. Also he/she must know a variety of techniques of moulding, cutting, pasting, etc. The student must have a sense of proportion and a good taste for colors and textures. Younger students can usually do a little collage work, i.e. sticking paper shapes into the appropriate outlines. Students from Std I onwards, learn a huge variety of craft either at home or at school and as a hobby they may master any of the types. Students (except G0) should bring their own material for the first round. The material should not be pre-cut or pasted or shaped. For later rounds everything needed will be provided.
