Di Ditcham, of Thornlie, and Helen Jenke, of Lesmurdie, two Lesmurdie artists to host workship on an ancient textile printing, the Dabu mud block printing technique next week on March 22 and 24.
Ditcham said that this ancient textile technique is still used today in Rajasthan, India. The practice had almost died out in the last century but was revived and is today a flourishing business in many villages of Rajasthan.
Dabu printing is very labor intensive and involves several stages of printing and dyeing; the end result is therefore very unique and beautiful. Dabu printed fabrics display a subtle and extraordinary beauty and depth which is appreciated around the world.
It has captured the imagination of modern day designers. Daboo is today frequently used to decorate many Indian and Indo-western clothes and home dÃ©cor items.
They will supply all materials, including the mud paste, indigo dye, printing blocks, fabric and paper. Participants will learn to use household items as printing blocks, they will print on fabric and paper.
