Traditional Block Printing Workshop

April 30, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm

Join Fair Trade Philadelphia for a fun-filled afternoon to learn about the history of block printing and to try your hand at it!

The workshop will take place at Cherry Street Pier and will be led by Ritu Jadwani, fair trade educator and founder of Namaste NYC, and facilitated by the Fair Trade Philadelphia Steering Committee.

Bring your own garment, bag, fabric and/or paper to print on, and we will supply the ink and blocks! A limited supply of jute reusable bags will be available and stock cards for a donation (Cash or Venmo). Also, feel free to wear a smock or clothing you wouldn’t mind getting dirty!

Namaste NYC is a handcrafted ethical brand that works with women who are physically disabled and victims of domestic violence to sustain the crafts and textiles of India. Namaste NYC trains women in sewing and embroidery, who create one-of-a-kind scarves, apparel and trinket accessories, helping them generate remuneration and become financially independent.
