Introduction to Japanese Color Woodblock Printmaking
The Japanese developed a woodblock printing method using water as a medium, brushes to apply colors to the blocks, and a hand-held baren instead of a press to transfer colors from multiple carved blocks to the papers. This is a low carbon footprint, non-toxic printing method with a great tradition behind it.
The workshop is organized to offer a comprehensive introduction to the wonderful range of tools, techniques, and materials involved in this process.  Everyone completes a multi-color print and engages with aspects of design, carving, and printing. There is an emphasis on sharing tricks and techniques that may be adapted to other approaches to making art (watercolor painting, western-style printmaking).

All experience levels are welcome.  Each 3-day workshop is taught in six three hour sessions.  To find out more, and to see prints made by past class participants, take a look in the Studio, or send me a note.
