Ta Taa, Kochi!

With my stay here in Kochi almost at an end, I'd like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has attended a workshop at Viakerala, Lilly St. 33 pairs of hand from near and far have gotten to grips with squeegee-pulling and taken away some pretty sweet printed things, and a sound understanding of the basics of screen printing. Here's a few snaps from the past three workshops, along with a little montage of all your gorgeous faces and prints! See you later in the year for more printing adventure. Peace and love, Leyla @ottsotop.
