ArtInn Jaipur – block printing in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

I am currently working with local artisans in Jaipur, Rajasthan in India. I am learning traditional block printing using wooden blocks. Also, local block master made several blocks designed by me and inspired by my small son’s experience of India (….mom, look, there is an elephant! Why are these cows on the streets? I am sad, they are there all alone… Maminko, auto! etc.)
We are spending almost a month India and it’s been very enriching and exciting experience. My current project here combines my new blocks in black outline and traditional colorful ones. The silk piece will be later used in installation.
