Japanese woodblock prints (mokuhanga) are characterized by the luminous brilliance of watercolors hand-printed from multiple blocks in tight registration using a traditional baren. No press is required, water is the only solvent, pigments sink deeply into the paper, and minimal workspace is needed. In this class, students design block sets to be machine-carved using a laser engraver, then ink and print the blocks using traditional mokuhanga techniques. This workshop takes place in both the Patton Print Shop and the Digital Fabrication Studio.
