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