JAPANESE WOODBLOCK (MOKUHANGA) WEEKEND, FLORENCE MA
May 29-31, 2020
This 3-day workshop will introduce all aspects of the process: transferring images to woodblocks, carving with Japanese tools, using the kento registration system, and printing with brushes and a hand-held baren. You will also have an opportunity to try a few of the printing techniques particular to the Japanese method — bokashi (gradation), texturing by varying amounts of water or rice paste, overprinting two colors to create a third color, and softening carved edges. The workshop is open to beginners as well as students who have already had some experience and want to expand their practice. For more information and to register, visit the Zea Mays Printmaking web site.

July 6-10, 2020
A five-day intensive workshop in the beautiful desert setting of Santa Fe that will allow participants to delve more deeply into this rich traditional art form, offering time to begin to develop the sensitivity to materials that is essential to using the technique successfully.

SINGLE-BLOCK MOKUHANGA, FLORENCE MA
August 26-28, 2020
In 2020, Zea Mays Printmaking (where I've been teaching for a decade), will be focusing on "more sustainable printmaking," including upcycling materials, re-using old plates or prints, and thinking in new ways about old things. In that spirit, this 3-day workshop will explore approaches to using the Japanese method of multi-block watercolor woodblock printing in a more free-form and economical way than is traditionally done. Using a single block and experimenting with white line and reduction carving methods along with masks, stencils and other techniques, participants will have the opportunity to discover new and contemporary ways of using this ancient method. The workshop is open to beginners as well as students who have already had some experience and want to expand their practice. For more information and to register, visit the Zea Mays Printmaking web site.
