Jamie is passionate about block printing which is an ancient textile art still flourishing in part of India but one you can enjoy too.
Jamie loves to share her passion about block printing and shows Valerie how versatile and exciting this can be. This ancient art of textile printing is still practised in many part of the world, but particularly in Jaipur which is where Jamie loves to visit.
The blocks are varied not only in design but also in how they can be used; they can be used to print onto pretty much anything and Jamie shows how the fabric paint – which is water based – is absorbed by the fabric so that the fabric remains soft to the touch and if child-safe.
The fabric once created can, of course, be turned into a huge variety of projects – from clothing to home dec cushions and cushions; from Ipad covers to small clutch purses and then there is Gelli printing…..
Want to know more about any of these? keep watching – Jamie joins us next week to show Valerie how to use the block prints!
