CHAI Studio Hosts a D.I.Y. Block Printing Workshop


Bring your own item of clothing or an accessory that needs refreshing, and create your own personalized design at CHAI Studio's one-of-a-kind block printing workshop this Saturday, July 13.

Block prints are designs carved from wood, a practice dating back to Mughal rule, and dipped in colored ink. In the spirit of CHAI Studio’s continuous effort to salvage and recycle items into new, hip fashions, workshop guests are invited to bring an item they already own to revamp. There are over ten different blocks to choose from, all of which have been preselected for their beautiful design and high quality printing abilities.
