Where do the wood blocks come from?

They are Fairtrade and carved by hand in India. They're made from a very hard dense wood called Sheesham wood.

I haven't done any art before - can I do a workshop? I'm not creative!

Yes absolutely you can (and we think everyone is creative). Wood block printing is very accessible to all, your tutor will tell you everything you need to know.

How does the paint stick to the fabric?

The paint is made permanent by heat, so items need to be ironed after the workshop.

Do you sell wood blocks or kits?

Not at the moment, but we offer a 5% discount off equipment and supplies from The Indian Block Print Co. for all workshop participants.

Are the workshops sustainable?

Yes, we have sourced organic or sustainable materials for printing on. The paint is water based and biodegradable. The wood blocks can be used hundreds of times.

Are the workshops suitable for disabled people?

It very much depends on the nature of your disability. Please contact us and we will try our best to accommodate you.

Do you host private or corporate workshops?

Yes we can, please contact us for more information. 

Do you do workshops for children?

Where do you get your designs from?

All our designs are illustrated by us either by hand or using a computer programme such as Adobe Illustrator. Every element is original and subject to copyright.

Where are the cushion covers and tea towels made?

The covers are made in the UK because we believe in reducing carbon footprints and supporting home grown small businesses. 

All our cushion cover fabrics come from a cotton supply chain which is monitored by SEDEX and OEKO-TEX certification. This means the environmental impact of processes and the conditions of workers are checked to make sure they are fair and legal.

What is in the cushion inner pads?
