Japanese Water-based Woodcut Printmaking (Mokuhanga)
Mokuhanga is perfect for anyone interested in a non-toxic, table-top printmaking technique. Over the course of the two days you will learn the skills to transfer an image to Japanese plywood and carve various colour separation blocks, following in the tradition of Japanese Ukiyo-e printing. With no mechanical press required, only a hand held ‘baren’, you will learn the techniques to achieve various print effects, from ‘sesame printing’ to ‘bokashi’ (gradation), while registering your multi-block image through the simple but brilliant traditional ‘kento’ registration system. You will be sure to fall in love with both the process and results of this accessible, water-based printmaking method which provides endless possibilities.Some recent feedback from a participant on this course …
