Japanese woodblock printmaking is an ancient art form dating back to the 8th century. This beautiful technique of carving and printing from woodblocks is a non-toxic technique which uses watercolours and water based inks. The fine structure of Japanese papers enables hand burnishing with a baren (bamboo pad) instead of using a printing press.
This two day workshop is suitable for beginners and those with some previous experience who would like to refresh their knowledge and improve their basic skills. Students will learn how to carve and print an edition of colour prints (maximum size: 23 x 15 cm) using the Japanese registration method of ‘Kento’. Colours are printed in stages using the reduction block method (the block is carved appropriately for each colour).
