Wood & Water: Mokuhanga Monotypes

with Annie Bissett

August 26-27, 2022, 10-5

$275 non-members, $235 members, + $35 materials fee includes blocks, paper, ink

Limited to 8 participants

Mokuhanga, the traditional Japanese method of woodblock printing with watercolors, usually requires careful planning and precise registration of multiple carved blocks to create a polychrome image. This newly developed workshop is an 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, this workshop is a fun and gentle way to become comfortable with the basic ingredients of mokuhanga printing.

Note that students who want to explore carving will need to purchase and bring a few of their own carving tools. A complete materials list will be sent upon registration.

All workshop participants must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and be prepared to show proof of vaccination at the workshop.  Mask wearing required.
