Block Printing


This is my first block print  – fulfilling a desire I’ve had for ages.

To do this, I had to enroll in a full time class at a government institute for a month, sit glassy eyed through lots of lectures in chemistry, hang around impatiently for instruction,  wallow in large tubs of water dyeing bits of cloth till finally, finally, they let me actually touch a block to pigment and put it  to cloth. And the results are so stunning when done right , its incredible.

There’s a long road ahead if I want to do this well. But this is the firs step:-)))
