Oh Joy, oh bliss we finally got into the blockprint studio...the rain was hanging aorund teasing us but not enough to slow us down this time. Thank goodness I was fit to burst with impatience!
Just a few pictures- there is a whole album on Facebook if you want to share our day...this is an open to the public link you do not need to be a member.
Back in the workshop checking over some jackets we are putting togther for one of our clients I was struck but what a lovely weight and feel there is to the heavy handloom [ which block prints beautifully] with a rayon velvet lining....definietly jacket potential for Tasty Old Chooks Clothes in that observation.....wish our winters were a little colder to snuggle up in one.
I am so enjoying our workshop, no sooner than we have an idea, test it out as a sample, than we have a whole group of guys turning it out....at the moment we are making miles of braided fabric to go on sundresses- very pretty sundresses for a client and I feel like I am back in school doing the afternoon craft...the guys are everywhere turning strips out side in and then plaiting. Here is Gopal- ji resplendent in wiskers- he is not shaving for the month of Savan in honour of Shiva and Shankar laughing at him.
Happy happy satisfying day :)
