INTRO TO MOKUHANGA, IN-PERSON WORKSHOP, PROVIDENCE RI
July 12-14, 2022
This 3-day workshop at Providence Art Club will introduce all aspects of making a Japanese-method woodblock print: transferring images to wooden blocks, carving with Japanese tools, using the Kento registration system, and printing with brushes and a baren. We will also focus on a few of the printing techniques particular to mokuhanga, especially how to create a bokashi (color gradation). Suitable for beginners as well as students who have already learned mokuhanga and want to sharpen their skills. More information and registration is available on the Providence Art Club web site.
WOOD & WATER: MOKUHANGA MONOTYPES, IN-PERSON WORKSHOP, FLORENCE MA
Aug 26-27, 2022
This workshop is a fun and gentle introduction to the materials used in Japanese woodblock printing — wood, water, pigment and rice paste — without the arduous process of carving and carefully registering multiple blocks to form an image. Experimenting with uncarved (or lightly-carved) blocks of wood, masks, stencils, and pressure printing, participants will have the opportunity to discover fresh and contemporary ways of using this ancient method. Suitable for both beginners and experienced printers. More information and registration is available on the Zea Mays Printmaking web site.
INTRO TO MOKUHANGA VIDEO COURSE, ONLINE
If you've ever wanted to take a course with me but couldn't because of time or geography, here's a chance to learn mokuhanga at your own pace, in your own space. Available exclusively through Zea Mays Printmaking, this video course takes you through all the steps to make a Japanese woodblock print, from choosing tools to preparing your block, transferring your images, carving tips and multiple printing techniques.
