Block Printing with Colouricious Holidays

Come on a wonderful block printing holiday to Jaipur. 

If you love arts and crafts, then you will I am sure, love to learn how to block print your own fabric. The art of block printing is an ancient Indian form of fabric printing using hand carved Indian wooden printing blocks. Block printed fabric has been produced in Jaipur for hundreds of years and is still very much a wonderful technique for fabric printing. Colouricious Holidays specialise in teaching their guests how to block print and we love to stay in wonderful hotels to make the whole holiday experience really wonderful. One of our absolute favourite hotels is called the Alisisar Hotel, which is actually a haveli. Haveli means a house built in a quadrant with a courtyard in the middle. This haveli belongs to a family who have 3 palaces and this particular haveli is their town house which they have converted into a gorgeous hotel. Have a little walk around this haveli to see how beautiful the accommodation is…

Hotels in Jaipur – Colouricious Block printing holiday

As you can imagine, it gets quite hot in India, so our guests really enjoyed the magnificent swimming pool at this haveli. The building is cream in colour and retains many of the original features that were enjoyed by their predecessors. Obviously the pool is new but really adds a special attraction to this hotel. Not only is the building beautiful but must say how lovely the staff are too. The food is truly delicious and luckily is made for the western market, i.e. not too spicy.

During the day our guests are off learning how to block print in authentic factories, with real printers using wooden printing blocks and at the end of a busy day, what a treat to come back to the Alsisar Haveli – one of our favourite hotels in Jaipur.

Come on a Colouricious Holiday and stay here with us!
