Printmaking at a Studio in Kalighat




So thanks again to the kindness of my Kolkata host Dithi, who had a knack of reading my mind and knowing exactly what interested me, I got to do printmaking at Kalighat, at the fourth floor studio of her teacher Ramen Kastha.
I did the drawing for this etching no doubt, but he did all the hard work of putting the various chemicals and then operating that heavy printing machine while I watched on owl eyed with amazement at the complex and intriguing process that goes into the making of a print. These are the works that emerged and I am thrilled to bits with them. 
Thank you Dithi and Ramen Kastha.
