Introduction to Mokuhanga
(Exploring Arts of Japan Series)
Date: Saturday, April 29
Time: 10 am – 4 pm
Registration Deadline: April 26
Mokuhanga means “woodblock print” in Japanese. It is a water-based printmaking method that involves planning a graphic image, transferring the outlines to woodblocks, and carving and printing it. This one-day workshop will introduce a short history of Mokuhanga and take participants through transferring an image to two blocks, carving with woodcutting tools, using a Kento registration system, and printing with brushes and a hand-held baren. Students should look at Mokuhanga prints, both contemporary and traditional! The size of the finished image will be 4X6″. Bring in a couple of simple images from which to draw inspiration.
