Taking Advantage of the Time Out
Udyog Kala Kendra, the workshop which produces much of our block print and batik fabrics, is usually humming with activity. The printing blocks tended to pile up here and there, making it difficult to find any particular one. The enforced work stoppage gave them the opportunity to do a massive workshop reorganization. Over 120 carved wood blocks were cleaned up, divided into categories and carefully catalogued according to size and pattern. This will prove very useful in the future — no more hunting!
