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 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.
