Palampur is a hilltop town of Himachal Pradesh located in the Kangra Valley. This place is known for its Tea plantations hence also known as the ‘Tea Capital of North India’. Himachal Pradesh has been consistent in impressing the world with its vibrant yet simplistic style of Folk-art like Chamba embroidery, Pahari painting, Mohra metalwork, Buddhist woodwork, Tibetan folk dance, and varieties of handloom products. Hence we can find numerous training camps and workshops set up in certain cultural centers of the state offering lessons on specifically thread art, weaving, carving, quilling work, hand paintings, and many more. Sobha Singh Art Gallery and Museum is one such gem from Andretta village near Palampur. This place is regarded for its craft culture passed through generations. Sobha Singh Artist is the founder of the center, who set up space since the partition of the country. He believes in sustainable living through art, with a personal slogan “Grow More Good”. At present, the art gallery is run by his wife Mrs. Kamaljit Kaur, a learned veteran who conducts classes in handicrafts like yarn bird making and quilling work. This has largely encouraged the natives to learn a skill and earn a good living out of it.
