Soon on my way to beloved Mother India. This time will work together with block printers in Baghru, Sanganer, Ajrakhpur. Combining research, practical work and by following the whole process of pattern making and preparing for the book project; “Block print, trace from hand and nature”. Follow the work at @theblockprintingbook on Instagram.
We are in the middle of the process of putting everything together, recipes, texts, photos, illustrations, story lines, portraits. We are also testing papers, fonts, cooking, arguing and recharging batteries. It´s really rewarding, scary, fun and soon it´s not just our little baby anymore…
Back home after two weeks of traveling in India looking at the textile works of artisans in Rajasthan. The craft heritage in this part of the world is amazing as well very complex due to the situation for the workers. Thank you India and all of you that we had the pleasure to meet this time.
Visited two block carving workshops in Jaipur today. Delicate patterns made with skilled crafting hands. A nice sweater can also make you feel better when you are out of cash.
