Art and crafts lessons in schools are considered very important to the psychological development of students. These classes allow children to unleash their creativity and make keepsakes that they and their families can cherish. However, very often, the fruits of their labour lie neglected on shelves at home, gathering dust after initially being admired. Jai Eapen, a Hyderabad based entrepreneur, has two daughters who are exceptionally skilled at creating beautiful pieces of art. “My elder daughter is eleven years old and she is into quilling (a craft form, in which strips of paper are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs). A couple of months after she started quilling we realised that there were 40 pairs of earrings, and assorted necklaces, greeting cards, and brochures, she had made that were just lying around the house,” he says.
