Print off the Block: A Hand Block Printing Workshop in Jaipur
An interactive workshop at an art residency , with a block printer nurtures your understanding of a printing technique that is a part of India’s contemporary textile culture. As your eyes get fixated on the intricate sharpness of every carving, you get sensitized to the painstaking time and effort involved in each stage of the printing process.
We follow the different stages in the printing process, with the help of swatches –from grey cloth to the final finished product. After a quick demo, you get to craft your own personalized creation by choosing from a variety of designs on wooden blocks, and a range of colors. Bring along a t-shirt or a scarf or just simple napkins, paper or textile, anything that you want to print on, and an open mind raring to experiment
