Fasting and feasting are the two most commonly known aspects of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr. During the thirty-days of ‘Ramadan’ every individual following Islam observes a ritual of fasting, from dawn to sunset. ‘Eid’, on the other hand, marks the end of Ramadan and is a religious holiday, celebrated by the Muslims around the world.
Festivities don’t have any religious or cultural limitations anymore. In today’s creative era, people and educational institutes alike, have begun to accept and celebrate these occasions in their own unique way.
Hamstech institute is one such creative educational organisation which believes in multicultural development. And like every other festival, Ramazan and Eid too are celebrated with much enthusiasm.
So go ahead and learn more about how Hamstech celebrates these two festivals. And if you like our ideas, why not try them for this festive season.
Light up your interiors
In Hamstech’s interior design course, an exclusive topic on thematic decoration is taught. In this programme, students learn simple yet significant ideas of decoration like:
If you are all set to host an ‘Iftaar’ party at home, a quick way to light up your place is to add a few colourful lanterns with scented candles as a centerpiece. If you want to highlight one particular area of the room, you can hang the lanterns at a corner.
Next, to add a bit of glam to your interiors, you can hang crescent-shaped moon and small stars along with the ‘Eid Mubarak’ cut-outs.
You could also go an extra mile by taking inspiration from the Arabian tradition. An Arab décor for your ‘Iftaar’ party will surely get you all the compliments.
Complement the Occasion with Fashion and Jewellery
Keeping the Indian festivals in mind, students in fashion design classes from Hamstech get an opportunity to design one exclusive garment.
This time too, students from the fashion design department created some beautiful ethnic wear. Students used intricate embroidery, zari and mirror work to bring out the true beauty of the textile. Motifs used were inspired from the crescent moon and star. At the end of the competition, three best garments were awarded.
Similarly, students from the jewellery design course crafted traditional jewellery, taking inspiration from the colours of this festival. As Gemology is an important topic covered in jewellery designing course, students used various types of stones, metals and precious gems to create accessories that won many hearts.
So, this Eid, make use of your jewellery designing skills and come up with some exclusive pieces.
Capture the Moment
Ramadan is incomplete without a good family picture. So, how about bringing the entire family together while breaking your fast? You can capture candid moments, like children praying, the traditional delicacies being served and the bond of a family. You can give your album a story you’ll cherish forever.
If you love this idea, you can pursue a photography training course which will teach you all of this and more!
So use your creativity and make this Ramadan and Eid a special one!
