Block Printing is an old Indian art form that uses a hand-covered wooden block that is dipped in dye and stamped by hand onto cotton or silk fabrics. Block Printing is the earliest, and the slowest of  printing methods. This process of fabric printing is capable of giving high artistic results, which cannot not be gained by other printing methods. Hand Block Printing designs are carved on the block to get intricate and simple designs. Usually, traditional Indian motifs are used to achieve the hand block printing on fabrics. Years of experience and skills are required to achieve clear block printing patterns.

The Workshop Began

Shen then went ahead and stuck them on the cardboard cutout, drew flowers with orange colour and green leaves on a coloured bookmark.
