LISAA Bangalore and LISAA France Students took part in textile workshops
LISAA Bangalore students and a group of 40 Fashion Design Students, 20 of them from LISAA Paris worked on natural fabric dyes made from Indian herbs like mehandi, mulethi etc in Bengaluru, which taught them sustainable practices and working with eco friendly & organic colors. Students learned from master artisans about the types of block printing, pattern dyeing, wood carving techniques – how blocks are made, preparation of pigment print colors, contemporary interpretations of block printing, and much more. Students had to create innovative textile swatches by combining different techniques learnt, but with a contemporary treatment.
LISAA School of Design organized the visit to Tharangini Studios to give them wide knowledge of the development process of the dyeing and hand block printing. Hope they will use it in their projects presented in France. Dyeing and Hand block printing was something new that French students really liked and were fascinated by. We are curious to see what this ‘East meets West’ exploration of indigenous techniques of the local artisans combined with the design sensibilities of the French students, brings about.
Hand printing by using natural fabric was something new which students from France have never seen before and we are sure they will not forget the visit to Bengaluru.
