Fabric Weaving & Wood Block Printing in Kathmandu

Hello,

I'm in Kathmandu at the end of November. I'd like to spend some time with local people learning about wood block printing onto fabric and maybe fabric weaving. Maybe have a go myself too. I'd like to buy some old wood blocks if not too expensive. Any tips, please let me know!

Not exactly what you asked for, but in Bhaktapur there is a old print shop (onto paper) that does wood block printing. It's directly across from the famous Pheasant Window, which is on a little alley.

Not sure about wood blocks but this may be a good place to attempt weaving. I haven't used them but we're planning on using them in a month or so.
