Introduction to Japanese Color Woodblock Printmaking
The Japanese developed a woodblock printing tradition using water as a medium, brushes to apply colors to the blocks, and a hand-held baren instead of a press to transfer colors from the carved blocks to the papers. The workshop is organized to offer a comprehensive introduction to the wonderful range of tools, techniques, and materials involved in this process. Everyone completes a multi-color print and engages with aspects of design, carving, and printing. There is an emphasis on sharing tricks and techniques that may be adapted to other art-making (watercolor painting, western style printmaking). All experience levels are welcome.
Each 3-day workshop is taught in six three hour sessions. Send me a note if you would like more info. To find out more, and to see prints made by past class participants, take a look in the Studio.
