Blocks & Prints – Meenakari Arts
Unleash your creativity! Try your hand at printing - we'll teach you how incredibly easy and FUN it can be! Add a personal touch to your T-shirt, home linen, even your stationery!
Block printing is repeat patterning on a fabric using carved wooden blocks. Mix and match multiple blocks, patterns, and colours for an infinite range of designs!
A basic block printing workshop includes a demo, a practice session, followed by printing on items of your choice.
We can customize the content to be as detailed as the time you have available - optional topics include a brief history into the types of textile printing (e.g. Ajrakh / Dabu), or more printing on different types of clothing (e.g. T-Shirts / Bedsheets / Dupattas) - you choose!
Even more time? We're also open to conducting tours to the textile printing centers in the states of Gujarat and Rajasthan - contact us for details!
Comments from our workshop participants include: "Instant Gratification!", "My Best T-shirt ever!", and "Very effective therapy". Give it a shot - we're pretty sure you'll like it :)
We have printing blocks available in all sizes and designs. We can make customized blocks if you have specific designs in mind. We've also conducted 10+ workshops and demonstrations around the United States, so drop us a line if you're interested!
