Moku Hanga: Japanese Watercolor Woodblock
November 4 @ 10:00 am - November 6 @ 5:00 pm$460.00
Friday-Sunday, November 4-6, 10 AM – 5 PM
with Annie Bissett
Mokuhanga (literally “wood print”) is a term for the ancient Japanese technique of watercolor woodblock printing—an elegant, green, and low-tech process that works easily in a home studio and combines well with other media.
This workshop will introduce all aspects of making a mokuhanga 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. Note that students will need to purchase and bring their own carving tools.
