Off to find the wood block carvers of Pethapur, India

Updated: Jul 10, 2020

Hey all of you out there who might have the time to accompany me on my next journey – I’m off to a small town outside Ahmedabad, Gujurat, India to find and collaborate with the disappearing wood block carvers of Pethapur. So once again I will be squatting on dusty wood shavings and drinking chai with craftsmen whose descendants have been woodblock carvers for centuries. The imagery concept is different this time – it is more global and I’m not going to be responding to India only issues. So I’m off next Tuesday, and reasonably well prepared with a few drawings for the carvers. I’ll be posting stories and pix and will attempt to make some very novice i-movies. Until India xxx
