Block printing is on the programme for today - a technique where patterns are printed onto fabric. Valérie and I are expected at a little artisan workshop tucked away at the end of an alley. These artisans delight in sharing their knowledge. We delight in learning and - after several disastrous attempts!! - in realising just how dextrous you have to be. Yet they seem so natural when they do it - so quick and consistent...it's a real art!
After a few hours we leave brimming with new ideas...and with stained fingers!
