Mud resist is a fascinating textile printing technique with mud and indigo dye. The process is completed in three steps: printing with mud and then dipping in indigo and finally washing off the mud to reveal the printed design on the textile.
Mud resist is an ancient technique still practised in Rajasthan in India. It gives a unique printed result which can't be achieved by any other methods.We will start the day with an illustrative talk on the history and technique followed by demonstration and hands-on workshop. We will be guiding you through every step of the process and all raw materials will be provided for you.
Mud resist printing traditionally uses wood blocks which you can choose to create your print design from Sevanti's own collection, you will also be using recycled materials to print with and you are welcome to bring anything suitable from home.
The mud will be prepared and ready for you to use and you will have natural Indigo to dye your printed textile which gives a wonderful blue colour. We will provide all material including fabrics to experiment and a final product to print on and take home. The process is therapeutic and fun at the same time gives wonderful results. Once you learn the techniques from this class you will be able to practice it from your home.
Please bring your apron if you have one and any objects you would like to print and experiment with.
