Introduction to Natural Dyeing and Block Printing - Beginner Weekday workshop 

It was the mid 19th century when the first chemical color got created. Before this human was only used to the colors that they extracted from nature with their own hands. They used the same to create art, to beautify oneself, to color their clothes, etc. They used colored earth, minerals, plant extracts to create complex yet beautiful processes to express themselves through the art of different forms. These art forms were passed on to the next generations.

At the workshop, you will be introduced to the locally available ingredients that can be used for dyeing at the workshop. We will be making samples using two ingredients Manjista and Katachu. The lovely brown from Katachu and red from Majista are colors you'd be making from naturally derived ingredients.
