Punam is a teacher and presents printing workshops in schools. She buys hand carved wooden blocks at fair prices from highly skilled craftsmen in India. These blocks, available in a variety of sizes and patterns, can be used creatively for printing on fabric, paper and walls.

You can create your own designs on cards, bags, shirts, lampshades or tea towels. Children love using these to make patterns on paper or for a special project, such as printing T-shirts or cloth bags.

Unlike blocks available on line, these blocks have handles which are easy for children to grasp and use. The high quality blocks can be purchased for as little as £1 and can be tried out at the stall before purchase.
