Make your own edition of Kalighat-inspired woodcut prints! You will be learning the basics of the style of woodcut practised in 19th-century Calcutta. It is a very exciting printmaking technique which involves carving an image on a block of wood and taking its impression on paper (or cloth), using a traditional etching press, and also by hand. Calcutta has a history of woodcut from the early 19th century, at the time practised primarily for commercial purposes. This art form evolved into a form of fine art, taken up by early Bengali artists towards the end of the century. I would like to welcome you to my studio to get a glimpse of this tradition, and get hands-on experience of your own! Major things covered: - Background of woodcut printmaking, focusing on Calcutta - Background of the studio we will be in - Demonstration of carving and printing techniques, and hands-on practice of your own - Steps include drawing, carving, applying ink, and printing There will be a short Darjeeling tea break in between, and we will wrap up with a little display of all the results. You will take home everything you make, including the wood blocks, and an edition of your own prints!

Hello! My name is Amrita, and I am a printmaker, with a background in Social Anthropology. I have trained and worked closely under a master printmaker in Kolkata for over 5 years, whose studio I host this experience in. I lived in London for a few years for my studies, and completed a residency at East London Printmakers. I have explored several techniques of printmaking, such as woodcut, etching, lithography, screen-printing, and recently find particular interest in experimenting with non-toxic methods, such as kitchen lithography, mokuhanga (Japanese woodblock printing), and solar etching.

The experience will take place in a private printmaking studio, which is a hidden atelier in the busy neighbourhood of Kalighat. The studio belongs to my teacher who is a senior printmaker, and is a one-of-a-kind printmaking studio in the city, with a lovely new etching press, and facilities for screen-printing as well. He will be around during the workshop as well, sharing his experienced inputs with the group!
