Mokuhanga, the Baren and Printing at Home
This exciting printmaking intensive focuses on mokuhanga: water-based Japanese woodblock printmaking. This unique, environmentally friendly process involves hand carving and can be done at home on any scale, at any time, and in any place. The class discipline is to work in a narrative concept, creating a dialog in both storytelling and relationship with color, form, and space as a narrative in a diptych or long format. The students compose and recompose printed compositions to create complex images printed from beautiful shina wood onto traditional Japanese mulberry paper.
