Image: Amrita DasThe block-printer and indigo dyer Georg Stark, from Jever, Germany, has been a frequent visitor to the TRC in Leiden, sharing his knowledge and experience with TRC staff. He is now retiring and wants to sell his atelier and its contents to a suitable successor.

For 35 years his workshop has provided the means for a full living and it is honoured by the UNESCO as a place of cultural heritage.

The workshop houses more than 1000 antique printing blocks together with rolls of linen, fine cotton and silk. The atelier and its new owner will not be bound to the town of Jever and its contents may be moved to another location.
