Rangoli design competition winners
Earlier this month, we teamed up with the Asha Deep project, Support Northamptonshire and the Wellingborough District Hindu Association to deliver 300 activity packs around the Victoria and Isebrook wards in Wellingborough to help the community join in with Diwali celebrations. The creativity packs included activities that all members of the family could join in with, including making decorative diya lights and a Rangoli pattern design competition, both traditional Diwali crafts to decorate homes and bring good luck.
“This year more than ever, traditional celebrations such as Diwali, Christmas and Hanukah will be important to brighten up our lives through the pandemic, and as winter approaches. Many thanks to all of the participants for sending us their beautiful designs and brightening up our day!”Project Producer Sarah Brown
A community panel selected the winning designs from an array of dazzling artworks with prizes of shopping vouchers awarded to the most imaginative patterns, and certificates of appreciation sent to all entrants.
The Rangoli pattern templates are still available on our website if you would like to make your own design to brighten up your home, or put in your window to bring some colour to your neighbourhood.
We received lots of brilliantly creative entries, many thanks to everyone who sent in their beautiful artwork and congratulations to all of the winners of the competition!
