About The Workshop
Mokuhanga is a Japanese printmaking technique in which wood blocks are carved and painted with watercolor inks.  The colors are transferred to paper using a hand baren.  Using transparent inks and multiple blocks, the colors will blend on the paper as successive layers are applied.

This 2-day workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced printmakers.

Before the start of the workshop, participants should create a design idea suitable to fit onto a 9" by 12" block.  (It need not fill the entire area.)

On the first day, you will learn how to transfer your design onto the wood blocks.  You will familiarize yourself with the carving tools, and begin carving.

The second day will include paper preparation, inking of the blocks, and using a baren to make the print, watching your full design emerge as you print all three blocks.

Each participant will need a basic set of woodcut tools.  You may bring our own, or purchase a basic set for $20 from the studio on the first day of the workshop.
