Natural dyeing and block printing – Beginners’ workshop in Bangalore

Nature is full of colours, colours so beautiful and captivating that men from early times have tried to capture its ephemeral beauty to decorate themselves and their homes as colour seem to speak the very language of the soul.

Art of traditional block printing on to cotton cloth is thought to have existed in India for over 4500 years. Evidence of the Indian craftsman’s unsurpassed skill with printed and dyed cotton cloth appears through out the history.

– Identifying locally available materials
– Preparing the fabric for dyeing and mordanting
