Block printing is a traditional Indian art form of using wooden blocks to print on paper and various types of fabric. We have curated a special Diwali workshop, where the participants will be printing on cloth coasters of high quality. Each person will print on a set of 6 coasters and take it back with them. The colors are permanent on cloth and there will be a range of colors that you can choose from at the workshop. This set of 6 coasters will be a great gift for a special someone or you can also use it with your family and enjoy your daily 'cuppa'. Block printing is one of the most interesting and creative art forms for all age groups. This workshop is an introduction where you can use a wide range of blocks from traditional, geometric, abstract and popular culture patterns.
