Join Electrify Magazine for an intimate evening to celebrate the ethos of mindful consumption and slow fashion through the debut of Bagru, a short film and a block-printing workshop where each guest will have the opportunity to print their own textiles by learning the centuries old block-printing technique from Bagru, India. In celebration of Electrify Getaways’ upcoming journey to North India this fall 2018, Electrify has partnered with the interior designer Aimée Wilder and Jeremy Fritzhand of Studio Bagru to showcase a special block-print collection inspired by quirky, global patterns.
Through the short-film Bagru and a printing workshop, be transported to Bagru — a small Indian town located thirty kilometers outside of Jaipur – the capital of Rajasthan, where artisans have been hand-block printing for over 350 years. Discover how while many Rajasthani villages have turned to screen-printing as an alternative to block printing, Bagru has remained loyal to its history, culture, and craftsmanship. Learn about each segment of the supply chain and process of printing. The outcome is not simply a scarf, napkin, bed sheet or blanket, but instead – a work of art. This 350-year-old tradition has seen little variation since its inception.
Each guest is invited to partake in the hands-on block-printing workshop and is welcome to bring their own clothing or textile to print; tote-bags will be available for purchase. Space is limited for this event— please RSVP.
