ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Printmakers know the beauty of Japanese woodblock prints. Contemporary artists are enjoying this technique that develops their deep concentration, keen observation and hand skills using natural and non-toxic materials. We’ll explore the history, tools, materials, carving and printing. You will learn how to transfer your image onto two to four woodblocks using the kento registration, carve each block using traditional tools and methods, apply water-based pigment and rice paste to the blocks using Japanese brushes, and use a baren to hand print each color woodblock onto washi paper.
Suitable for all levels; no experience necessary! Ages 19+
In an effort to maintain our non-toxic environment, the Woodstock School of Art does not permit the use of turpentine or mineral spirits in the painting studios. Additionally, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne or scents of any kind. Learn more.
