2018 Workshop Schedule

Basic Mokuhanga

This is an intensive 3-day workshop that covers various aspects of the traditional and rare Japanese printmaking process – mokuhanga. The process is versatile and differs from western (oil based ink) woodblock in that it is water based and non-toxic, using watercolor pigment, wood block, Japanese carving tools, rice paste and Japanese paper to create beautiful refined prints. It is done entirely by hand without a printing press. Each participant will learn how to design, carve and print an edition of multicolored woodblock prints. They will learn the kento registration system. At the end of the workshop a print exchange will occur offering each student the opportunity to go home with a print from each of their classmates. Printmaking experience is not required.
Limited to 8 participants
