Hand block printing comprises of an intricate but interesting process. Work is divided amongst the craftsmen. The nature of work at the workshop is different from that at the riverside. The work at the riverside is less complicated but requires more energy and stamina. The labor in the workshop is expected to be more skillful, diligent and patient, since block printing requires a stable hand and the capacity to sit and work for hours together. Each one specializes in the task he is doing.
