“Many thanks indeed to Nidhi and Chitra for their organisation, their attention to detail and their cheery temperaments, all of which go a long way in ensuring the success of the programs they arrange for us. India has so much art and beauty and skill and it was wonderful to learn about one aspect of it, ie, block printing. Our compliments to the facilitators whose efforts will make us look at block prints with a healthier respect in future.”
