A little feedback from a few students:

"Hi Matt, thank you again for conducting such a carefully planned and wonderful workshop. You really spoiled us with all the preparation you put into it with the pre-cut paper, pre-cut blocks, jigs,and all the materials within hand's reach. Thank you for welcoming us into your home and shop the way you did. It was a very special event and I am grateful to have been part of it."

Lucie Wellner, June, 2007

 

"It would have taken me a couple of years to have learned what you shared in a weekend. Absolutely."

Ruth Rego, June, 2007

 

"I wanted to thank you for an incredibly rewarding workshop experience. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it except to say that I could literally feel all the tension of everyday life being carved away with the wood shavings. It was magical."

Mary Forrester, May, 2006

 

"Dear Matt, I thank you for the excellent workshop--maybe the best I've taken. I came away feeling I had gotten a complete sense of the Japanese woodcut and a love for the process of making it. For me it's definitely a gateway."

Ruth Ginsburg-Place, May, 2006

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have taught one or two color woodblock classes each year since 1997. They say to teach is to learn, and certainly teaching has taught me a great deal. Each new class increases my enjoyment of the interchange, challenge, and variety inherent to the process of making hanga color woodblock prints.

At the end of the last day the class gathered for a group picture while Helen was printing her last block.

Prints from the workshops

Prints are approx. 4 1/2" x 6". Included are links on the names of students who maintain web-sites of their own work (look for underlines). Each student finishes and editions their print on the last day to be able to receive a portfolio of all the prints from the class. When you consider many of these prints were made by folks who may never have carved, made prints, or sometimes even taken an art class before, it is quite exciting to think of what this imagery represents!
