The Art of Wood Block Painting
Date and time
Humber College Student Welcome and Resource Centre - Lakeshore Campus
Offered in English.
Wheelchair accessible and has gender-neutral washrooms.
Block printing is known to have been used in India since at least the 12th century, although this method is thought to be around 2,000 years old.

Indian printers have created uniquely complex designs, coveted from Southeast Asia and palaces of Mughal emperors to the far-flung capitals of Western Europe.
Join us for this folk art workshop and colour your cloth with different wooden carved pieces.
