Hand Block Printing from India

Hand Block Printing

This centuries-old Indian art form uses a hand-carved teak wood block that is dipped in dye and stamped by hand onto cotton or silk fabrics to create unique designs.

Youth will first learn the relevant history and practical applications of this art. They will then choose a fabric, blocks and colors for their art. With the help of sponges, the paint will be applied on the blocks and stamped on the fabric. This process will be repeated till desired result is achieved.
