5th DAY – INDIA – JAIPUR – WOODBLOCK PRINTING

by Antonio Gil September. 24, 2015 1748 views

Woodblock printing on textiles is the process of printing patterns on textiles, usually of linen, cotton or silk, by means of incised wooden blocks. It is the earliest, simplest and slowest of all methods of textile printing. Block printing by hand is a slow process. It is, however, capable of yielding highly artistic results, some of which are unobtainable by any other method. To better understanding the process you can see the video.

Another great class you give us. And the most wonderful part of this process, for me, is that it offer people a vocation. The computer driven machines are leaving more and more people without work. This is a terrible recipe, with an ever growing population with less and less to do.
