Jaipur India 90 Minutes Private groups of any size
Step into the shoes of a worker as we take you through the inner workings of a hand block printing workshop. This experience will reveal the detailed steps required to take a plain sheet of fabric and turn it into various decorative table linens. Beginning with the wood blocks hand carved with intricate designs, all the way through to the finished product!
On this tour you will connect with the local workers, learning the techniques they’ve established to produce consistent, quality products. Everything from the type of wood needed to create a durable block, the amount of dye to be used, and the colour change that occurs during washing. At the end of the tour, you will have the opportunity to test your skills and create your own unique fabric piece!
-There is a lift inside the workshop for accessibility.
-There are many dyes in the workshop, so please wear something that could get fabric dye on it
(unlikely to happen, but no need to risk it).
-Please inform us of any relevant allergies in your booking.
-Transport to and from the location are not included, but can be arranged upon request.
We look forward to having you on our tour!
The workshop is located near C-block, north of the Bank Colony. A meeting place with easy access willl be arranged upon booking!
