BLOCK PRINTING CRAFT BOX 

6,930

Block printing is the craft of using carved wooden blocks to create intricate print transfers onto textile or paper. It is one of the earliest forms of printing known to us. Hand-block printing is done with an expert approximation by eye, with no grids outlined ahead of the printing. The beautiful imperfection of the human hand gives this craft a unique, humane quality. Block printing is a craft that requires practice to create elegant, even patterns, but is equally fun for free-hand experiments.


The Nila Block Printing Craft Box comes with a set of custom designed, botanical-motif hand-carved wooden blocks, textile blanks and an instruction guide to help you get started with your print experiments.

 

Your craft box contains:

5 wooden blocks in custom botanical motifs

Handwoven cotton blanks for a stole and bandana

(200 x 100 cm / 55 x 55 cm)

2 ceramic vases containing natural colours of red (Madder root) and yellow (Fire Flame, indigenous to Rajasthan)

2 ceramic vases myrobalan and alum

A porous ‘dabli’ or sponge cloth for the pigment tray
